Great Dunmow used to have a railway line running through it that started in Bishop’s Stortford and finished, 45 minutes later in Braintree (and vice versa). The passenger service ended in 1952 with goods traffic continuing to use the line until its close in 1969. Following the demise of the railway line, which has been taken up the route has become a very pleasant walk. This picture is taken just passed the Dunmow Cutting (heading towards Great Dunmow) and shows one of the old bridges that you come across periodically down the walk. You can (kind of) see another of these bridges in this photograph of burning wire wool which was also taken on the Flitch Way.
