  Severn Bridge Junction signal box
Severn Bridge Junction opened in 1904, and although on joint property of the London and North Western and Great Western Railways, was of pure LNW design.
It was built to their standard design of 1876, and is basically a king-sized version of Edgeley Junction No1 although it features taller window sections to allow the signalmen a better view from such a great height.
Warning and Shunt Ahead arms would show the equivalent W or S. Severn Bridge Junction is still in use, although some rationalisation of the signalling and layout has taken place.

 Severn Bridge - Glasgledius   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The Severn Bridge is nowadays generally regarded as the main crossing point from England into Wales, despite the fact that the two countries share a land border.
Prior to 1966, when the first suspension bridge was built across the estuary of the River Severn, road traffic between Wales and the southern counties of England - including London - either had to travel via Gloucester or take a ferry, which ran, roughly along the line of the Severn Bridge, from Aust to Beachley.
The second bridge, which is of cable-stayed construction and hence, despite the apparent similarity, is not a suspension bridge, is wider and more resistant to high winds, and, because of its location, enjoys more traffic than the first bridge, which is still in general use.

 Severn Bridges
The Severn was once the busiest river in Europe, and in view of its length, it is not surprising that some of the bridges were built by great engineers such as Telford.
There were already over ninety bridges, not counting a number of others which have been removed or which have collapsed, and one which was hit by a ship, and not counting crossings by pipelines and cables.
A journey along the Severn, 210 miles from Severn Beach to the summit of Plynlimon, is a journey through the history of bridge building, offering a look at some structures which were at the forefront of technology when built.
