Hayling Island Rail and Road Bridges added to Bridges in South East by macspite on 31/12/2019

The marker shows the somewhat conealed entrance to a parking area opposite the service station that is on the left as soon as you have got onto the island. It is a popular spot to park for walkers and dog walkers looking to follow the route of the old railway line. There is an area of grass amongst the trees that I use for take off. Check for cyclists zooming past! The road bridge is on your right, to the left (west) is the embankment of the old Hayling Billy Line extending northward into Langstone Harbour. The wooden trestles of the old bridge can be seen encased in concrete which was done to strengthen the bridge, there iare the remains of the turntable that was used to open the bridge to boat traffic between Langstone and Chichester harbours. At one point there was a scheme to constuct a canal to link into the Chichester canal, itself to be extended to London. Thus goods could travel from Portsmouth Docks direct to the capital by barge. The rail bridge and the associated branch line was closed in 1963 as part of the swingeing cuts imposed on the railways by the then Minister of Transport, Ernet Marples (Of the roadbuilding and construction company Marples) following Dr Beeching's recommendations. Although the line was slightly in profit the cost of needed repairs to the bridge was the reason given for closure

Corby Bridge (Wetheral Viaduct) (By CSB73)

Corby Bridge was built between 1830 and 1834 and carries the Carlisle to Newcastle railway over the River Eden. It stands about 100ft above the river and also carries a footpath to connect the villages of Wetheral and Corby. You can park beside the road beneath the viaduct itself and follow a public footpath to the riverside. Be mindful of overhanging trees on take off then head out over the river for some great shots.
