Notes about this historic site

1 A former ‘cattle creep’ style railway bridge in engineering brick and ferro-concrete carrying the trackbed of the combined Broom north and south curves over farmland. This bridge was built as part of the main Evesham, Redditch and Stratford-upon-Avon Junction (ER&SJ) Railway contract. During the evaluation by fieldwalking of this dismantled railway it was recorded that the ‘cattle creep’ bridge will not be affected by the construction of the new road, and recommended that a photographic record be made.
