The remains of Dowles Bridge
The Dowles Bridge carried the Bewdley to Tenbury railway line across the River Severn. The line closed in 1964 and the bridge was partially dismantled the same year.
River Severn

The River Severn is the longest river in the United Kingdom, at about 220 miles. It rises at an altitude of 610 metres on Plynlimon, in the Cambrian Mountains of mid Wales. It then flows through Shropshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire, with the county towns of Shrewsbury, Worcester, and Gloucester on its banks.
The river is usually considered to become the Severn Estuary after the Second Severn Crossing between Severn Beach, South Gloucestershire and Sudbrook, Monmouthshire. The river then discharges into the Bristol Channel.
