Road over former railway [3]
Road over former railway [3]
The bridge carries London Road (A4) over the Chiseldon and Marlborough Railway Path and it has obviously been extended by the concrete section which carries the roadside pavement.
The path is the trackbed of the former Swindon, Marlborough and Andover Railway later the Midland and South Western Junction Railway. Services ceased in 1961.
In addition to this through railway, Marlborough was also served by a branch line from the GWR main line at Savernake. The intertwined history of the two lines is well detailed by Wikipedia at: LinkExternal link
