4/55 Railway Bridge at NGR ST 0379 3625


Mineral railway bridge over road. 1857. Red sandstone, squared and coursed. Round arched opening, rusticated surround. Probably one of the smallest railway bridges extant, about a 2.5 metre clearance. Parapet obscured by ivy at time of survey (November 1983). The second stretch of the West Somerset Mineral Railway linking Comberow at the base of the mineral railway incline (qv) with the coast was opened 1857. The double track railway also carried passengers but only ran when the nines were operational. Mining ceased 1883 and after a brief revival in 1907-10 the stock was sold off in 1924. (Sellick, The West Somerset Mineral Railway, 1970).
