The A454 at Compton
The bridge carries a long disused colliery railway which the Great Western Railway tried passenger services on in the 1920's. It was closed seven years later in 1932, thirty years before 'Beeching', though it was still used for coal traffic until the 1960's. It now forms part of a nature reserve, See this site for more details LinkExternal link
