Craven Road leading to old footpath underway. This was very low and you touch the roof, used to wait ages as a child until a train passed over head. Very strange to feel the whole thing move.

Spot on Fire123. I was asked about this bridge recently and I too remembered it as a child to be very low and a bit scary to pass under. I also think you could look up and see the sky between the sleepers. Was it one bridge or a series of small bridges as I seem to recall?



...A couple of minutes later looking at the photo and I think I may have answered my own question! The rather substantial bridge in the background wasn't there when I was a kid so I suspect that may have been the bridge that I read had been demolished in the accident so I assume the accident was indeed here.

Brian did the accident take place here within this view or further out towards Dunham? I ask as I seem to recall reading about a mail train disaster in Dunham. The loco a Jubilee class engine was dragged to a private siding (Richards or Churchill's?) where it was cut up on site.
