Flush Bracket OSBM 50: Lockerley, Railway Bridge   

Flush Bracket on base of buttress of railway bridge over road, N. of Dunbridge Barn [2GL] - note that identification of location may be incorrect; the description "N of Dunbridge Barn" would seem to indicate the bridge *over* the railway at SU 311 263; "base of buttress" would also fit in best with this location, as the levelling line is evidently following the railway in this area. Another possibility previously suggested is the bridge at SU 299 264, which splits the gap between FB 49 and FB 51 less neatly than the bridge at SU 304 264.

I'm sure the bridge in question is at SU 3118 2631. This is an occupation crossing on an old track leading north from Dunbridge Barn (clearly labelled as such on the 1909 1:2,500 OS Map). As with FB51 the height and description suggest the BM is probably trackside. Also the same as FB51 the descriptions seem to have mixed up which form of transport goes over which!

I dont think I looked at correct bridge - it was a road bridge over the railway.
