Dennis, This is the bridge which was opposite Watneys (Red Barrel) offices which led onto the ginnel at the side of the railway ( i used to go looking for firewood for my mam down this ginnel which had been thrown down from the railway) The ginnel came out on Globe road. You can just see the GPO garage in the back ground behind the bridge

Hi Dennis Yes there is a railway bridge which you can just see (top right). This is the high line which i think went into the city station,there also was a low line which is down parallel with the ginnel.Regarding the high line bridge i used to live vertually under it on Bath Road which is on the other side of the bridge, i remember watching steam trains running on this line when i was a lad.Just before the bridge on the right is Silver Street you may remember The Rag Hole (as we used to say) which is where you used to take your old rags and newspapers which was at the bottom of the Silver Street.Oh I nearly forgot they did pay you for your old rags i think you felt lucky if you got sixpence come to think of it you may have only got a two pennies.
