EMR scrap yard and disused GWR Highworth branch line
European Metal Recycling (EMR) yard seen from the hump-backed bridge linking Gipsy Lane and Bridge End Road. The bridge crosses the disused Great Western Railways (GWR) Highworth branch line. At the points in the distance, a line branched off to the Pressed Steel plant (now BMW Mini, on the right), along which car body parts were formerly transported by rail to Cowley in Oxford for assembly.
