SE9718 : A bridge too far

taken 5 years ago, near to Horkstow, North Lincolnshire, Great Britain

A bridge too far
A bridge too far
Between the anchor points the track would seem to continue to the west, but not so. It turns left and follows the bank.
Ahead lies a parcel of land between the Old and New routes of the River Ancholme, at a level between two 5 metre contours, in which there used to be a pit and brickworks. The old pit is still there, wrapped round by agricultural land which was recently advertised for sale as Grade 3 and of the Wallasea 1 soil series, which is a deep stoneless non-calcareous and calcareous clayey soil. It is in the Environment Agency's Flood Zone 3, although it is an area defended by the Humber river wall.
There used to be a couple of houses here, built with the local bricks. For some local knowledge see: LinkExternal link
