Railway bridge. Circa 1853, engineer I.K. Brunel. Snecked rock-faced red sandstone ashlar with some rock-faced ironstone ashlar; brick intrados to each arch. Rock-faced ironstone ashlar retaining walls. Some late C20 blue brick patching. Wide elliptical arch with stepped voussoirs; flanking round pedestrian archways with rock-faced voussoirs and keystones. Tooled flat string course and parapet with coping. The Wolvercot Junction-Evesham stretch of the Oxford, Worcester and Wolverhampton Railway was opened in June 1853, and doubled in August 1854. Although engineered by Brunel the line was standard gauge from the outset. (E.T. MacDermot: History of the Great Western Railway: Vol.1 1833-63, p462)
