Victoria Bridge carries the Severn Valley Steam Railway

pedrocut on April 27, 2009

The Victoria Bridge is a 200 ft single span railway bridge crossing the River Severn between Arley and Bewdley in Worcestershire. Opened for traffic on 31 January 1861, the original railway line was closed in 1963. The bridge now carries the operational heritage Severn Valley Railway. Its design is almost identical to Albert Edward Bridge which also spans the Severn at Coalbrookdale in Shropshire, England, both having been designed by John Fowler. Victoria Bridge is a cast iron arch bridge, with four arch ribs each of nine parts bolted together. The arch elements were cast by the Coalbrookdale Company, and the bridge built by the company of Thomas Brassey, Samuel Morton Peto and Edward Betts.

It features in the film 'The Thirty-nine Steps' with Robert Powell in the leading role.
