The bridge carries the Welsh Marches railway line over a minor road in the village of Pontrilas, Herefordshire. Unusually, there is a signal box on the bridge. The box was built in 1880. Though Pontrilas station closed in 1964, the signal box is still in use, to control the points and semaphore signals in the area.
