Coningsby Railway Bridge, Coningsby, Lincolnshire

The Kirkstead and Little Steeping Railway, locally known as the New Line, was a railway line linking the East Lincolnshire Railway to the Lincoln to Boston railway through the fens.

Open in 1913 by GNR it was built to improve access from Lancashire and Yorkshire industrial centres to the seaside resort at Skegness.

As the land used for the line was generally flat there were no engineering difficulties and only three roads required the provision of bridges. The arched brick built bridge at Coningsby was one of those.

The line closed in 1970 after 57 years of use.
