TF9134 : Deep Railway Cutting

taken 8 years ago, near to East Barsham, Norfolk, Great Britain

Deep Railway Cutting
Deep Railway Cutting
A very deep cutting into the hill, so deep a concrete and brick base has been added to prevent mud slides. It is even complete with refuges for the Pway men, just like in tunnels. Looking towards Wells next the Sea.

*I have recently been informed these are the remains of a tunnel that existed prior to c1900 when the railway decided to convert the tunnel into a deep cutting. Using the soil to cover a nearby wooden trestle viaduct over the stream (R. Stiffkey). Source = an article in the GER journal by Alan Summers dated July 2001.
The Wells to Wymondham Branch Line
The branch line was one of the longest lines in East Anglia, running from Wymondham Abbey to Wells next the Sea, through four major Norfolk towns.
