Exe Estuary (6)
Regards, Robert Sherwood
Going the other way from Bradford and located at the site of the former Bradford West Junction is another elderly and rare survivor. A wrought iron 'caisson' bridge that dates from around 1890 and takes the line across the river Avon and adjoining land. Similar bridges at Bradford-on-Avon and at Staverton on the Melksham line were both replaced in the 1960s but this one stubbornly hangs on!
Always something of interest happening on the railways!
Best regards, Guy.
