To Mangotsfield: Westerleigh Viaduct
To Yate:Yate South Junction
The bridge across the railway.
The view towards Yate. The junction with the mainline is just about visible in this picture. At one time a flyover line crossed this spot taking north-bound traffic from the GWR line to the LMS one.
4956 on the flyover. The abutment where the line crosses the Midland main line is visible behind the engine. The spot where Gerald was standing is now under a warehouse. © Gerald Peacock
The digital zoom pushed to its limit with the corresponding drop in quality. Worth including though I think. The junction with the mainline. The opposite view is available on the Yate Station page.
The abutments for the flyover line are still visible in amongst the undergrowth.
The second abutment shows that the rest of this line is buried under the warehouse mentioned in the caption above.
A footpath leads from Beech Hill to Westerleigh Common and would have at one time gone under the flyover line.
