Little Bytham, Railway Bridge

This is the one surviving bridge (at TF 025 176) from the short-lived Little Bytham to Edenham Light Railway, commonly know as Lord Willoughby's Private Railway.

It opened in 1856 and closed for passengers in 1871, though horse-drawn goods wagons continued to use the line until 1884.

It provided a link from the main Towns Line at Little Bytham to a terminus close to Willoughby's home at Grimsthorpe Castle.

The bridge carries the minor road from Little Bytham to Witham on the Hill.
