SO6805 : Strange Steps

taken 10 years ago, near to Purton, Gloucestershire, Great Britain

Strange Steps
Strange Steps
These steps lead up the retaining wall for the railway line, however at the top the wall is still waist high making it difficult to either get on or get off them at the top. The tide here on the Severn can come in very quickly, so I can only think they are there to help people get off the sands.
