To Bristol, the North or London: Patchway
To Wales: Patchway (original station)
This bridge was built as an access lane to Little Stoke Farm from the A38 Gloucester Road. The farm no longer exists having been developed as Little Stoke and associated playing fields.

The bridge that crosses the line just to the north of Patchway station.
Looking towards Patchway station and the bridge is in complete silhouette. Just as I took this shot a pair of 50s shot past on the mainline.. I won't inflict you with my laughable photo of the occasion..
A general view across the bridge.
Looking over the edge and Patchway station basks in the low sunlight of a December morning.
Standing on the bridge and looking in the direction of Little Stoke. Of course, I only include this photo because of that signpost...
A last look at the bridge. Taken from a staircase that leads to a footpath to Gloucester Road.
