2 Photographs


The Photo galleries  are samples of the photos in our digital archive. We do not show many because we own very few that are totally copyright free.

Mike Edwards holds a considerable personal digital photo library of interest to anyone who has an interest in the local area and he kindly donates items for us to use. Our collection grows as local people donate them to the group.

These pages are a selection that show the significant buildings and sites in each village.

The photos form the basis of our regular exhibitions.

They are organised by these areas and themes.

Should you have any photographs that you might want to show than please contact us to discuss what and where it is best done.

Severn Tunnel Diagram of 1879

This shows the location of the Great Spring that was the source of flooding of the tunnel during construction.

Disused Railbed

There are many local lines that are abandoned. Some have since been converted to footpaths, others have houses on them and many are picked out in the landscape by the gates and uneven trails between surviving road bridges.

Severn Beach Station

The first Severn Beach station opened on this line on 5th June 1922 as an excursion platform, and fully opened with the commencement of passenger services on the line on 26th May 1924. Through services between Avonmouth and Pilning commenced on 9th July 1928. It closed to goods on 10th September 1963.
