Bosley Railway Bridge is an abandoned bridge on the former Churnet Valley line over the Macclesfield Canal at the Bosley flight of locks.

The Churnet Valley line was closed to passenger traffic following the publication in 1963 of the report ‘The Reshaping of British Railways’ by Dr Beeching. Freight traffic, however, continued until 1988 and saw the transportation of sand from Hepworth’s Sand Quarry at Oakmoor for use in Glass manufacture at St. Helens on Merseyside.

To the northwest of the bridge the alignment of the railway line can still be clearly seen from the grass covered embankment which runs parallel to the canal.
