Visited on 8th April 2007 by RogerTempleman. Grid reference: SU 6818 6511. Condition: Couldn't find it.
Couldn't see it, but bridge swarming with Network Rail personnel doing maintenance work. Strange construction of bridge with what appeared to be bricked-in arched recesses on the faces on both sides of the farm track.
