Railway Bridge Over Shaftesbury Street

Photo reference number: 16

The section of road put through in the 1870s as a more direct route Northwards out of Newport. Previously traffic had to negotiate the level crossing in Thomas Street and then travel down Mill Street and out along the Marshes Road.
The shop on the right is Pets Pantry - a pet stores run by Mrs P Walden.
