SP3943 : Dyke Lane Bridge

taken 13 years ago, near to Balscote, Oxfordshire, Great Britain

Dyke Lane Bridge
Dyke Lane Bridge
Looking across the farmland that was reinstated at about 15-20 metres below its previous level after the quarrying of ironstone in the 1940s. As a result Dyke Lane now appears to be on an embankment. The bridge was built to provide a rail connection to the SP4042 : Oxfordshire Ironstone Quarries Headquarters site at Wroxton and the line was subsequently extended towards Alkerton. The SP3943 : Course of Ironstone quarry railway can still be seen from the bridge.
