The Betzdorf Walk, Tudorville
The Betzdorf Walk, Tudorville
On the edge of Ross on Wye. This is actually the trackbed of the old Ross - Monmouth railway, closed as a through route before Dr Beeching could get his hands on it (which he undoubtedly would have done!) in January 1959. This section remained open as far as Lydbrook for freight traffic, effectively being operated as a long siding from Ross for the Lydbrook cable factory, until 1964. Nowadays, it's known as The Betzdorf Walk after one of Ross's twin towns, and is part of the buggy route which is accessible to wheelchairs and pushchairs.
