Tramway route at Soudley iron works
Tramway route at Soudley iron works
Now a bridleway, this was once the route of a tramway serving Soudley iron works. Iron making was a pretty fickle business, with the works changing hands many times before ceasing production in 1877. Most of the buildings were cleared in 1899, but the tramway is marked on the 1914 map. The stone building to the right is part of the old iron works. The tramway route is now a bridleway. The presence of a GWR boundary marker post in the grass some distance down the tramway route suggests that the tramway may have been included in the agreement for the GWR to purchase the Bullo Pill tramway and convert it to a railway.
