Former Ironstone branch crossing
Former Ironstone branch crossing
Little sign of the railway crossing that must have been just here. The line gave access to the ironstone quarry at Sproxton. But did the trackwork extended as far as the quarry? There is a report of a rail enthusiasts outing reaching "Sproxton" in 1972.
