Default Does anyone know where Ranelagh Bridge is?

(Cross posted to uk.railway because I think it is a railway bridge)

er well, as subject basically.

Googling was of no help, nor was my trusty London Atlas. I think it is
one of the bridges that crosses the line out of Paddington-but which
one exactly. The article I am reading refers to it as near Gloucester
terrace.


Any help gratefully recieved.

Ranelagh Place is the address of the Adelphi Hotel in Liverpool. Does
that help?

It's marked on the map at the end of this 2.6MB PDF:

It would appear to be the A40 slip road that comes form Porchester
Terrace.

It is the bridge between Westbourne Bridge and Royal Oak station, carrying
the westbound on slip to the Westway.

It is also the correct name for Fulham Railway Bridge on the West London
Line...

If you go to streetmap.co.uk, I believe Ranelagh Bridge is one if you search
for 525949,181535 in the search box

Mr 'U Thant's link takes the prize, a detailed planning map that shows the
bridge 'named' unlike most atlases etc...

In addition to the replies that you've already had, if you use Google
Earth you can also see the bridge and surrounding streets. The former
GWR and BR(W) fueling point was located in the small triangle of land
immediately west of Ranelagh Bridge, bounded by Porchester Square and
Porchester Road. Google Earth seems to show this now being used as a
car park.

Fulham Railway Bridge is the one carrying the District Line south from
Putney Bridge station.

The WLL bridge is usually called Battersea Railway Bridge, but Joe
Brown's London Railway Atlas calls it Cremorne Bridge, as does
Wikipedia. What makes you think it should be called Ranelagh Bridge?
