This former railway bridge is now used by the Bristol and Bath Railway Path.

The Mangotsfield-Bath branch of the Midland Railway had to cross the sinuous River Avon at no less than 6 places in just 8 miles. This is the fourth bridge west of Bath Green Park station.

The original lattice girder bridge was built in 1869, but was replaced by the present steel plate girder at some point, possibly in 1933 when the LMS embarked on a programme of strengthening the bridges on this line. The next Bristol and Bath Railway Path bridge crossing the Avon upstream from here is the very similar Newbridge Railway Bridge (Bath).
