The Elan Valley aqueduct crosses the River Severn near Folly Point between Bewdley and Arley. The pipes it carries are part of a network installed in the early 1900s to bring water from the Elan Valley in Wales to the city of Birmingham.

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 lifted and replaced.
