North British Railway Bridge

The easternmost and older of a pair of similar, but not identical, railway bridges which cross the River Forth a quarter-mile (0.5 km) north northeast of the centre of Stirling, the North British Railway Bridge comprise a riveted iron truss bridge supported by masonry piers. It was built c.1852 for the Stirling and Dunfermline Railway but taken over by the Edinburgh and Glasgow Railway six years later. It now carries the single-track Alloa Branch of the railway. There is a small World War II brick and concrete pillbox located on its northeastern abutment.
