Welcome to the 'New Somerset and Dorset Railway'

Three excellent shots taken today by Mick Knox.
Top shot contrasts with the wonderful shot of Midford on this blog's side bar. Notice that the breeze block wall to the left still exists! Hopefully we will be purchasing this site in the next few months, and will then be able to begin restoration work. Donations towards this are always more than welcome - please see the side bar.
Second shot is from the viaduct looking down on the Hope and Anchor pub, which will no doubt become an iconic railway pub with the restoration of the line! I suspect this will become the watering hole of preference for those of us engaged in the restoration work ...
Third shot is again from the viaduct with a view of part of Midford village. Once there were two stations here, the second being on the Limpley Stoke to Hallatrow line, which ran under the viaduct.
Reopening of the railway with a ten minute run into Bath should push up property prices in this idyllic spot!
