Ashton Swing Bridge Junction

A branch off the Bristol - Portishead line at Ashton Junction ran towards the western end of Bristol docks. On reaching Ashton Swing Bridge Junction the line then split to serve Canons Marsh Goods Depot to the north, with the southern link running to the location of the current Bristol Industrial Museum HQ. The junction was adjacent to the road bridge shown in the background beyond the former level crossing and gate pillars.
