Cant see that this has been covered before which I cant believe, though it is a bit "public" for most of you its a simply stunning location!
Another one I dropped in on our recent visit to some amazing caves, didnt expect much here but it far surpassed our expectations.
First the tunnels. Im struggling to find much info on these there was a pair of short tunnels that were part of the Bristol & district railway.
Though short they were some of my favourite railway tunnels to date.
This tunnel is an amazing mix of brick , stone & cut through natural rock. This was particularly interesting how they had bricked up a natural fault in the rock to prevent fall
The cutting ion infa for something different
Walkiing back along the line its difficult to even tell when you are actually on the viaduct with the tree build up either side.
Ham green viaduct was originally one of 6 timber viaducts built to Brunels design. This viaduct spanned the Windsor Hill Valley at 65ft The line was opened in 1859 but in 1899 a project began to replace all the viaducts with stone peirs & brick rings. The viaduct has 7 arches to a span of 20 chains
From the top its difficult to get any idea of the height of this structure.
Name that car
Thats all from here
