Hoo Hill sliced through by the West Coast main line
Hoo Hill sliced through by the West Coast main line
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 trees on the left are down the steep slope between the railway and the Coventry Canal. The land slopes on down to the floodplain of the River Anker.
