The Bristol Archive team were most helpful in providing access to the various documents they hold with regard to the Portbury Pier & Railway Company and associated projects.

Whilst our previous focus had been on the year 1852, the demise of the company and the scheme, we’d spotted document lists that predated the formation of the Company and could indicate the Company’s origins.

These documents were dated 1839 and 1840 and related to plans for a pier at Portishead and a subsequent plan for a pier at Portbury.

Brunel’s scheme for Transatlantic steam navigation led to the formation of the Portbury Pier & Railway Company (a joint stock company) between 1845 - 1852.

We wanted to obtain a list of directors of the Porbury Pier & Railway Company and made contact with The Steam Museum (GWR) at Swindon - we have yet to receive a response from them.
