End of the line

in Wednesday Walklast month

Not much left of this, the rail line I was told fed the Valley munitions depot a spur off the Mold to Denbigh branch line.

The raised embankment is still visible from the main road, a simple climb over a feeble fence and a 15 minute walk later to find the remaining line.

I was surprised to find the track was narrow gauge and pleasantly surprised to see that the manually operated points controllers hadn’t been acquired by a bunch of pikeys or someone who might like them as garden ornaments

A few rusted bogeys still sitting hoping for their lives to be rescued

Time and tide waits for no man. If a tree wants to grow it will grow.

Hey @grindle, here is a little bit of BEER from @thethoughtpolice for you. Enjoy it!

Denbigh

There's a certain... more famous place around there. Never tried it, or a little too famous for your tastes?

Yeah massive tour bus, bus stop outside! It’s never appealed tbh. I did pool park and that fell below expectations too.

That tree grows up with metal! Amazing!

I'm always so intrigued seeing old abandoned train tracks and you've got more than that there with all of the equipment still hanging around too!

A great Wednesday walk and I look forward to seeing another one next week!
