Looking towards Eaton
From SK7926 : Bridge in a field there is a good view of the Eaton iron ore branch line. Operated by the Great Northern Railway company this network of mineral railways criss-crossed this part of north east Leicestershire serving a thriving iron ore industry. Now the countryside is peaceful with only the embankments, cuttings and occasional buildings and bridges remaining as a testament to an industrial past.
