SD9806 : Delph Branch Line

taken 11 years ago, near to Uppermill, Oldham, Great Britain

Delph Branch Line
Delph Branch Line
This very low 8 foot high railway bridge in Dobcross used to carry the long gone branch line to Delph that closed in 1955.
The old track bed is now a popular recreational route between SD9807 : Delph and SD9906 : Uppermill Viaduct for purposes such as cycling, walking and horse riding.
Although the railway infrastructure has mostly been removed, the architecture of the bridges, walls and buttresses remains. The route is also an important wildlife corridor with trees such as Silver Birch, Oak, Rowan, Willow and Hawthorn, together with several varieties of wildflowers, being visible along the route
