BRISTOL PORT AND PIER RAILWAY

DESCRIPTION + /

Partly dismantled railway. Railway built between a terminus beneath the Clifton Suspension Bridge (later Hotwells Station) and Avonmouth, and was 5 3/4 mile long. Opened in 1865, there was a plan for extending it to Temple Meads, but this never transpired. From 1869 the company was in the hands of a receiver, several works were incomplete, and in 1871 the company was absorbed by the GWR. The GWR had its own plans to build an extension line from Clifton to Avonmouth, and from a point South of Sneyd Park used the incomplete Pier Company route to Avonmouth. The Sneyd Park - Hotwells section remained in use until 1922 when the line was closed and dismantled.
