new S&D bridge - 2007!
Midford 1980 - original S&D architecture
The first bridge to be opened on the S&D for over 100 years - the Fiddleford Trailway has built a new 75 metre bridge over the River Stour in Dorset. Yet again part of the S&D is put back!
My only issue is that in the report (hyperlinked above) there is an amazing quote - 'The Somerset and Dorset Railway line was closed to railway traffic in 1966 and has mostly been forgotten since then'!! I think a lot of us here at Midsomer Norton plus our friends at Washford, Gartell and Shillingstone, plus the dozens of heritage lines that have S&D special events and the tens of thousands of railway fans and local people deserve an apology for that!
