Maesdown Road Bridge

The only publically accessible over-bridge on the ESR, Maesdown Road Bridge gives excellent views of the railway and a lovely photo opportunity.

A goods station was located here between 1866 and 1874 to service the nearby Bramble Ditch Quarry but after 1874, the stone was moved by tramway to the nearby Dulcote Siding (now Merryfield Lane) and now all traces of the station have gone.

During 2005 and 2006 a footpath was built between Mendip Vale and Maesdown Road Bridge. This gave public access to the Mendip Vale Platform and we do our best to keep this footpath accessible. We welcome help keeping this clear, so if any groups or individuals would like to assist please get in contact with the ESR Office.
