NZ7718 : Old railway embankment

taken 5 years ago, near to Staithes, North Yorkshire, Great Britain

Old railway embankment
Old railway embankment
A short section of embankment from the old coast railway remains between the viaduct abutment and a stone arch bridge for farm traffic to pass under.
The valley of Staithes beck ahead would be a formidable obstacle to bridge even today, with difficult ground conditions for foundations of tall structures.
