Very low bridge, Walthamstow Marshes
Very low bridge, Walthamstow Marshes
There used to be a level crossing over the railway line here. The sign still warns of overhead cables, but the crossing itself has been closed. The fence to the right of the image marks the site of the crossing.

The bridge under the railway tracks has very low clearance, just 5 feet (or 1.5 metres). Cyclists using National Cycle Network route 1 must dismount and wheel their bikes under the bridge.
National Cycle Network Route 1

National Route 1 of the National Cycle Network is a long distance cycle route connecting Dover and the Shetland Islands mainly via the east coast of England and Scotland. The route is all signed and open except between London and Woodbridge (in Suffolk) and between Whitby and Staithes (in Yorkshire).
