taken 9 years ago, near to Horley, Surrey, Great Britain

Gatwick: Main London to Brighton railway line
Gatwick: Main London to Brighton railway line
Viewed looking towards Horley station from the footbridge north of Gatwick Airport station, Stephen's TQ2842 : Station Buildings, Horley, with its prominent chimney at either end, is just visible in the distance. The railway has been here since 1841.

As an aside looking at the 1879 Edition of the Ordnance Survey map some text has been added in the vicinity that says:

"British Sepulchral Urn, Flint Arrow Heads, and Bronze Roman Coins found here."

Perhaps they were found during the construction of the railway.
