Dismantled railway south-west of Tregaron, Ceredigion
Dismantled railway south-west of Tregaron, Ceredigion
This is where the former Manchester and Milford Railway approached the crossing of the A485 road as they both neared Tregaron. The trees at the end of the visible track bed are where the bridge was removed when the road was widened and straightened in the 1990s(?)*.

The image was taken from the bridge carrying the Trecefel farm road.

* Local knowledge about the year this road was widened and the new crossing over the Afon Teifi was done will be appreciated.

The Manchester and Milford Railway (which went to neither place) closed in 1965.

Wikipedia states that this was the Carmarthen to Aberystwyth Line, a standard gauge branch line of the Great Western Railway in Wales. As a result of floods and the Beeching Axe, the line closed throughout to passengers from 1965, and to freight from Pont Llanio creamery near Tregaron to Aberaeron Junction near Lampeter in 1970.
