Dismantled railway line near Washington
Dismantled railway line near Washington
This is the original route of the railway line between London and Newcastle-upon-Tyne, opened in 1838. Although the main line was rerouted via Durham in 1872, this line continued in use until 1964 for passenger trains, and 1991 for freight.

The tracks have now been lifted, but the ballast remains.
