Old railway lines are cool aren’t they? I like that the Overground reclaimed so much of that.

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.
