The first one looks like it goes somewhere, to be honest.
Also, you’re stealing my fucking thread, you bastard
yeah, well: it doesn’t. please don’t question me like that in my own thread.
Old railway lines are cool aren’t they? I like that the Overground reclaimed so much of that.
that’s the stuff
Is it a nature reserve now like Parkland Walk here in London? Looks like you can maybe get into it from a park at the bottom going from your overhead map.
I don’t think so. Think I’ve seen it mentioned before that they plan on getting it back into use as a railway line at some point.
There is a former railway line that’s now a walkway in Harborne though. Might do a walk along it next weekend actually.
Ah yeah, that’s the sort of thing.
Yes, makes more sense to keep it protected if they want to use it for a railway in the future.
Once, as part of a university history project, we had to design a new war memorial. I came up with the Hyde Park Misery Bridge. It’s a huge concrete ramp with huge concrete ramparts and it goes nowhere - yet to walk to the end is a long uphill slog. This makes an important point.
