Track of Old Railway, nr. Higham on the Hill
Track of Old Railway, nr. Higham on the Hill
Looking towards Nuneaton along the track of the Ashby - Nuneaton line. The railway closed to passenger traffic as early as 1931, but remained open for freight until 1971. The trackbed at this point, and all the land to the right of it, appear to belong to MIRA (the Motor Industry Research Association), whose proving ground is well hidden behind a thick screen of trees and high fences.
