Course of old railway near Ryeford
Course of old railway near Ryeford
This, believe it or not, is where the railway between Gloucester and Hereford once ran. The line passed under the A40 - which is immediately behind me - and ran in a cutting along the line of the fence on the right of the shot. The cutting has been filled in and the bridge demolished, but there are still a few railway relics here and the route of the line is still visible on aerial photos. Taken looking towards Hereford.
