The northern part of the Manchester & Milford Railway was built from near Llanidloes to this point, passing through the cutting seen ahead, and continuing about half a mile further behind the photographer. When the railway gave up its plans to cross the Cambrian Mountains, it was left to rot and was eventually dismantled. In 1925 the GWR, which had acquired the M&MR some 10 years earlier, looked into reinstating the line as a branch, only to find that it had itself disposed of the land shortly after takeover.
