Where the S&D crossed the ring road.
Splendidly preserved right of way in Blandford.
Further south on our 18 February trip we hit Blandford. All of these shots are of the single track section north of town. With the exception of a few infills and missing bridges this whole section to Shillingstone and beyond is in excellent shape, just waiting for the tracks to return. Obviously this section will not be restored until after Blandford is once again connected to the network, but heritage operations may well start in advance of this under the auspices of the Shillingstone group.
