taken 9 years ago, near to Warwick, Warwickshire, Great Britain

Former Avon Generating Station, Warwick
Former Avon Generating Station, Warwick
The bank against the railway, left, is composed entirely of sand.
Apparently, a fire in the stockpile of coal for the power station had to be smothered with trainloads of sand brought from the South Wales coast.
A dune flora developed by the railway. Before trees shaded them out, it was common to find marram grass, soapwort and evening primrose on the bank.
Evening primrose hybrids escaped from the site and still turn up in local gardens as a spectacular weed.
