Cove: Frog Lane railway bridge
Cove: Frog Lane railway bridge, taken 8 years ago
The 1874 Ordnance Survey 6" to the mile map shows this bridge at the end of Frog Lane (now Holly Road). It is almost certainly therefore part of the original fabric of the railway, dating from no later than 1838. Its original function, pre-dating by a long margin all the housing in the area, would probably have been to provide access to either side of the railway to a farmer whose land had been split by the construction of the embankment. Today it provides a pedestrian route under the railway between Holly Road and West Heath Road.
