Grace Dieu Viaduct

2009 Retrospective - I had a number of images I took last year that I would have liked to have posted on SC but time didn't allow.  For the time being I am posting a number of these, in no particular order, which I hope you will enjoy.

Shepshed, where we live, was once on the Charnwood Forest Railway, long ago closed and dismantled.  Quite a lot of the infrastructure is still in situ and there is a pleasant walk a few miles from the village which takes you under the viaduct at Grace Dieu, near the village of Thringstone.

More details of the railway can be found here

I have posted some more images, some from SC and some not, over the weekend.  I f you want to take a look they are here

I can feel this place, Brian. I bet it has its own character in each season.
Brian Walbey: I'm sure you and Astrid would enjoy a walk through here Ginnie, and then return to the Carvery at the car park for lunch as we did.

I am obliged to you for this information Brian. I confess I had never even heard of it but it looks a great place to stroll
Brian Walbey: It is a nice stroll Chris, I'm just dissapointed that the railway, and most of its infrastructure had gone well before we moved here.

It does look a very interesting place for a walk - the combination of nature running wild and old industrial relics is always a good one.
Ingrid
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely walk Ingrid, and at the car park is an excellent carvery for lunch which we took advantage of.
