The Elan Valley aqueduct crosses the River Severn near [[Folly Point]] between [[Bewdley]] and [[Arley]]. The pipes it carries are part of a network installed in the early 1900s to bring water from the Elan Valley in Wales to the city of Birmingham.

After crossing the aqueduct, the pipes run through a chamber underneath the railway. In the [[Severn Valley Railway Timeline 2010-2019#2015 | winter of 2014-2015]] three of these pipes were replaced in a major project initiated by Severn Trent Water; this required the line to lifted and replaced.
