NZ3150 : Fencehouses level crossing

taken 7 years ago, near to Fence Houses, Sunderland, Great Britain

Fencehouses level crossing
Fencehouses level crossing
The change in the road surface marks the site of a railway level crossing. The railway through Fencehouses fell into disuse in around 1992. The line is still "mothballed", retained by Network Rail in case there is a need to bring it back into use in future. In many places the track is intact, but it would need to be restored at this point.

The railway also marks the boundary between County Durham (this side of the crossing) and Tyne & Wear on the far side.
