MDE21765 - Late 19th Century railway bridge west of Woody Bay Station (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
- None recorded
A hollow way passes through a gap in the embankment of the disused Lynton and Barnstaple Railway line. The embankment is revetted in well weathered stone, which may represent the remains of a former bridge carrying the railway over the track.  The embanked line was crossed by a pipeline in 2000, but the ground works were not observed.  It is not clear to what extent the restoration of the current railway and the creation of a bridlepath under the track has damaged or reused this feature.
