Course of Gloucester Docks Branch railway
Taken looking towards Over, at the point where the former line crosses Alney Island Nature Reserve. Alney Island is so called because it's bordered on all four sides by two channels of the Severn. The reserve is a good place to see all manner of birds, insects and butterflies and features large areas of wet grassland and flood meadows. Though it's not obvious from this view, on the aerial shots of the railway line it's immediately obvious that it was built for double broad gauge track.
