Etherley Railway Tip, Witton Park
Etherley Railway Tip, Witton Park
The location was just to the north of the village of Witton Park, although the railway station at this location was Etherley, a village a mile or so away. 'Spent' track ballast and materials were dumped at a landfill at this location in the post-war years, until the 'tip' was closed in 1989. Loco 03067 was based here for shunting spoil wagons in June 1978.
