Osney Rail Bridge
|Osney Rail Bridge|
|Carrying:||Cherwell Valley Line|
The original bridge was built in 1850, when the Great Western Railway built a new line from its original Oxford station at Grandpont to Rugby. The north side of the bridge was on the island which was then called Osney. A second bridge was built in 1887 within a foot or so of the first bridge.
The bridge is maintained by Network Rail, who refer to the bridge as River Isis Crossing.
