Glenfaba Bridge

Glenfaba Bridge carries the A27 over the River Neb just south of Peel. It is a single span stone arch bridge set on a double bend, with wide, flared approaches to allow traffic to better navigate the bends. The road across the bridge itself is quite a narrow S2 without pavements between stone parapet walls.

In the 1870s, the railway between Douglas and Ramsey was built, and ran along the north bank of the River Neb, passing under the bridge abutment. A second arch was punched through the structure to span the new railway line. The old trackbed is now a pleasant path and cycleway between the two towns.
