Same location as previous but facing towards Wheatley. Note how steeply the trackbed falls away below the level of the headshunt where I was standing.

through that bricked up section of wall with the graffiti, to an island platform.

Facing up Gibbet street. Bridge walls clearly visible on both sides. The guy in the approaching red car, stopped when he saw my camera,
waited a couple of minutes, reversed & disappeared down a side street, maybe he's a bit shy.

Next street along towards St Pauls is another rusty Iron bridge.
Hopwood lane facing south (30-04-06) : David Webdale

Yard  included a signal box & turntable. The formation of the line clearly visible on Google earth.

Thought I'd better take a photo of these neglected but solid old houses.
Now on death row, soon to be replaced with concrete & tacky artificial stone no doubt.
