The recently opened footbridge at Highley/Alveley is the only public crossing for miles. It is next to the demolished Miner's Bridge. Highley(1878-1940) and Alveley(1936-1969) collieries exploited the Brooch Seam with shafts 279m and 344m deep. The coal supplied the power stations at Ironbridge and Stourport-on-Severn being transported by rail on what is now the Severn Valley Railway.
