English Heritage Protect Historic Railway features

More than 40 railway structures given protected status after an English Heritage consultation.

From the soaring brick Silly Bridge in Oxfordshire to the Tudor Gothic stone Pixash Lane Bridge in Bath and North East Somerset, English Heritage's project to safeguard historic railway buildings, bridges and tunnels along the Great Western main line, has resulted in 35 new listings and seven structures being upgraded by the Department for Culture Media and Sport. Stretching from London Paddington to Temple Meads in Bristol construction on the route began in 1836 to the designs of the father of railway engineering, Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
