Welcome to www.Norfolksdisusedrailways.com web page for all railway lines outside of Norfolk.
Cross Keys Bridge
Here we see the Cross Keys swing bridge on the now A17 at Just before Sutton Bridge just past the Norfolk Lincolnshire border.
This swing bridge was used for the Midland & Great Northern Joint railway on the Sutton Bridge South Lynn part of the line.
Cross keys bridge was built in 1897 and cost £80-000
During the railway days one lane was used for railway traffic and the other was used for road use until the M&Gnjr closed in 1965 and was converted to two lanes for road use.
These pictures were taken in April 2021
Looking towards Sutton Bridge the left hand lane used to be the old railway lane as seen here in the next two pictures
