Castle Hills
Castle Hills
The hill may have been excavated away on this side for the railway line (just to the right of the photo).
Stories and old maps suggest that this bore ancient earthworks and perhaps a roman station.
Coins and artefacts were found near here during the construction of the railway.
In the 1960s the hillside used to bear two advertisements for travellers on the London to Edinburgh main line: "Around here we read the Northern Echo" and another, an advertisement for paint, depicting two painters carrying a ladder between them.
At that time the travellers were probably more amused to see train-spotters sliding down the hillside on an upturned car bonnet.
