Reedham is a village located on the River Yare. Reedham is only handful of places left that has a fully operational railway swing bridge.

The site of the bridge dates back to the Victorian era where a single track bridge was commissioned in the 1840s by Sir Samuel Morton Peto and later opened in 1847.

When the Great Eastern Railway took over the line in 1904 the swing bridge had series of modernisations and improvements. The railway line became a double track and the new bridge at Reedham being built alongside the old one before the main line was finally realigned and connected with it. Currently the swing bridge allows trains to pass between Lowestoft and Norwich over the River Yare.

The photography in this collection was snapped during the summer months.
