Pub 8-9 – Incident

This railway bridge is above the crossroads between Leek Wootton and Hill Wootton  In 1861 the bridge collapsed due to overloading by a passing train, and sadly killing the driver and fireman. Full details are in the link below. 

 

If you are interested in local railway history, Robin Leach has written a series of very interesting books on the railway through Kenilworth.
