Stantonbury: Grafton Street footbridge
Stantonbury: Grafton Street footbridge
This footbridge follows the route of the former London & North Western Railway's Newport Pagnell branch from Wolverton. As originally constructed the railway passed over the valley of Loughton Brook here on a continuous high embankment with the stream culverted below. After the railway became a victim of Dr Beeching in the 1960s, the development of Milton Keynes proceeded apace. A new "vertical" road was necessary here and a footbridge was constructed to maintain the old railway route as a footpath. This is the view from SP8241 : Grand Union Canal: Grafton Street Aqueduct.
