Sure enough here is the new end of the Middy Railway. Its just quarter of a mile from home. They wanted to put a big turntable in here to turn the trains round to run back to the station. But with this new ending to the railway being just 50 metres from houses and as the railway didn't own the land they needed, they couldn't get permission, which I'm quite pleased about for the sake of the people who live there. Because it would have meant lots of people getting off the train to watch the turntable going round and probably wandering about the lane by their houses which would be quite a change from how their lane is at present.
This is where we picked loads of blackberries in 2017, now all cleared for the railway extension
I don't know how I feel about this, it was a lovely path (although not an official footpath)down the old track-bed, now its stones ready for sleepers and rails
Other machinery I might have been hearing was this, it's a willow cutter
I'm glad they haven't removed the cherry-plum tree - blossom just beginning to appear.
Heading home...........this is the footpath where boots get caked in mud after rain, and that cream house is my cottage at the end of a lane.
Thank you for all the comments about the random odd blog yesterday.
