Dismantled railway near Portway Farm
Looking south-east from a road bridge on the unclassified road between Tywford and Three Bridge Mill, this is the trackbed of the former Great Central Railway. This line when it opened in 1899 was the last main line double track railway to be built, and it ran between Sheffield, Nottingham and London Marylebone, see SP7022 : Railway line & former railway junction. The nearest stations were Calvert, 2km to the south-east, and Finmere in Northamptonshire, 8km to the north-west. The railway was dismantled in 1966.
