Woodland Railway Line

3 May 2008

On arrival in Broughton late in the afternoon, a shortish walk was just what was needed to unwind, and the railway line footpath to Woodland was a good choice.

The little tarn between the railway line and Broughton Park

As the route along the railway comes to an end, the footpath zigzags down the hill through bluebells to the road.

Walking along the road, the route of the railway can be seen by the bridge: clearly the embankment has lost a lot of height in the last forty-five years

Walking back along the ridge, more bluebells

Great Burney and Kirkby Moor
