SK2701 : The Trent Valley line east of Hoo Hill

near to Polesworth, Warwickshire, Great Britain

The Trent Valley line east of Hoo Hill
The Trent Valley line east of Hoo Hill
The Sandyways cutting slices into the steep northeast flank of the hill, a low northern spur of the Arden plateau. Hoo has the same meaning as hoe, howe and heugh: a spur of land, "a height enduring abruptly or steeply". The railway, the Coventry Canal and the River Anker all converge at a pinchpoint below the hill at startlingly different levels. This stretch of the original Trent Valley Railway was built as double track in 1847 and quadrupled around 1904. A view in daylight is SK2701 : Coventry Canal: Reach east of Hoo Hill
