This is only for selected people with an interest in railways, bridges, etc. It is famous as the scene of the Great Train Robbery of 1963. Other than the above, it is not for everyone.

After waiting almost 54 years, I finally visited this iconic bridge on 14 July 2017. The moment I stepped out of my car and stared at the bridge, I was mesmerised by what happened here in 1963. I've read books and watched various TV programmes...More

It is the place where the Great Train Robbery took place at 3am on 8 August 1963 and ever since people have been fascinated by "The crime of the century" - its probably the longest running soap opera there is. What I found surprising is...More

PS: Also the farm used is Leatherslade Farm, near the village of Oakley, not far from the M40, north of Oxford. Again, all marked on Google Maps.
