Great Central trackbed near Newton, Warwickshire

Great Central trackbed near Newton, Warwickshire

Go back to the records from the Newton map.
L1927. A general view of the trackbed of the old London Extension, looking north between Bridge 440 (behind the camera) and Bridge 439 in the middle distance. The retaining wall on the right marks the site of the former signal box, while on the left is the site of a former gravel pit that was once served by a siding from the main line. At the time of this photograph in June 1977, the former pit was nothing more than a jungle of willows - with orchids and the occasional Dragonfly in the summer.
