Old Photos of Witham

The old railway bridge over Highfields Road

Taken: 28 January 1973, Ref: M956

The old railway bridge over the bottom of Highfields Road before widening, from the south.

A year later, the nine-year old Lady Sarah Armstrong-Jones and her governess were travelling by train from Norwich and were delayed by the work on the bridge at Witham.

They left the train and continued onwards by road in a Triumph 2000.

She was the daughter of Princess Margaret and Lord Snowdon.

See also M958 and M959, and M1581.

There is a report in the Braintree and Witham Times of 14 March 1974.
