inbetweener - midsomer norton
(All copyright Jim Type)
Three great shots of Midsomer Norton taken in the 80s according to the photographer but to me the recently scraped trackbed looks more like 70s style - but it may simply be because of the time of year.
Just compare these with Midsomer Norton in the late 50s or, better still, today!
To me these really confirm the brevity of the closure period S&D. In fifty years' time people will almost have forgotten that the S&D was closed, dismantled and beginning to return to nature for a while. Now just to transform the other 30 or 40 stations that are still in suspended animation! I can't wait!!
