The bridge over the railway was built in 1838. Before the advent of the motor car it was plenty wide enough for people and children going to church or school and what little horse drawn traffic there was at the time to cross the road safely. In 1939 the Road Safety committee succeeded in getting a footbridge built at the side. It was completed just before the War broke out.
