SK2701 : Field above Sandyways cutting, Hoo Hill

taken 6 years ago, near to Polesworth, Warwickshire, Great Britain

Field above Sandyways cutting, Hoo Hill
Field above Sandyways cutting, Hoo Hill
Hoo has the same meaning as hoe, howe and heugh: a spur of land, "a height enduring abruptly or steeply". The Sandyways cutting slices into the steep northeast flank of the hill, a low northern spur of the Arden plateau. The double-track Trent Valley Railway was built through here in 1847 and quadrupled around 1904. The gantries spanning four tracks are out of sight in the deep cutting beyond the fence. In the distance are Birches Barn with Brook House beyond in the wide valley of the River Anker, SK2801.
