Elan Valley Aqueduct
During construction, a temporary siding was provided at Folly Point.
2014-15 Engineering work
After crossing the aqueduct, the pipes run through a chamber underneath the railway. In the winter of 2014-2015 three of these pipes were replaced in a major project initiated by Severn Trent Water; this required the line to be lifted and replaced. The old pipes remained at the site for several years, but were finally lifted onto wagons by the 30 Ton Steam Crane in April 2018 and moved to Highley. Photos of the move may be seen on the Bridgnorth Station website. As of 2020[update] a short section is restored, with the intention of display in The Engine House.
