River Trent floodplain south of Branston, Staffordshire
River Trent floodplain south of Branston, Staffordshire
The River Trent flows north-eastwards by the line of trees in the top right of the picture. The flood plain on either side of the railway line is former gravel pits that were filled in with flyash from nearby Drakelow Power Station during the 1960s and early 70s. The land is now partly used for rough grazing (sheep). The village of Branston (original home of the famous pickle)is clearly visible in the distance, on and beyond the northern edge of the grid square. Some taller buildings (namely the tower of Coors maltings) of the brewery town of Burton upon Trent are just visible beyond Branston. An early evening Virgin Voyager express train hurries from Birmingham, towards Burton upon Trent and Derby. The photograph was taken looking north-eastwards, at 19.27 hours, from the top of a recently erected footbridge over the railway and which as yet does not appear on any OS maps.
