Former Railway Trackbed used as Private Road
Former Railway Trackbed used as Private Road, taken 9 years ago
Formerly the railway from St Blazey to Fowey, after closure in 1968 the trackbed was converted to a road for lorries loaded with china clay to reach Fowey Docks. They have to pass through the narrow 1173-yard-long Pinnock Tunnel, which is equipped with traffic lights.
