Sharpness Docks

This substantial swing bridge took dock railway lines over the canal at Sharpness Docks, but is now used by road traffic only. A short distance to the north of here a further swing bridge, part of the old Severn Bridge railway, crossed the Gloucester Canal but closed when the main bridge was destroyed by a barge in the 1950s and has since been demolished.
