Could see the bridge from house I was born in, and I never heard it called anything but the Severn Bridge. No mention of high level, or even railway. That only came after the motorway opened in 1966. Though the 1960 disaster (in which five men lost their lives) saw the end of the bridge's useful life reconstruction was seriously considered and demolition did not take place til 1969/70.

The rail bridge that was famously damaged in an accident on 25 October 1960 (and subsequently demolished)
