Site of dismantled railway south-west of Tregaron
In this field, alongside the A485 Lampeter-Tregaron road, the former Manchester and Milford Railway entered from the right by the birch tree, and continued towards Tregaron, through the hedge straight ahead, to the left of the pink flower-smothered embankment (rosebay willowherb). A double bend allowed the road to negotiate a stone bridge before demolition and widening in the 1990s(?).

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.
