Green Lane Bridge


Green Lane bridge over the line of the former Godley to Apethorn railway line has a double arch.

Now that the line is part of the Trans Pennine Trail and National Cycle Route 62 walkers and cyclists use the larger arch whilst horse-riders use the other.


A closer look at the brickwork shows that the two arches vary slightly in construction which suggests the smaller arch was a later addition, possibly to accomodate a passing rail.

That's a bucolic, inspiring image... Bridges uniting what was formerly apart...

The colorful brick works leave a fantastic texture! Wonderful bridge! We have some similar bridge in Iran.

I drove over that bridgelast week. Green Lane is very bumpy and had many big puddles to drive through.
I aaked this pathway quite a few times and have ot noticed the join before... I must walk the track again with my camera and start to learn how to spot such things my friend.. ;O)
Hope alls well with your new home.

In Peebles Tweed Bridge is the same! The railway bridge was added at the time the railway was constructed but the bridge had been there for a lot longer. Could that have been the case here?
