Chasewater


Ah, thought so - the bleakness in the background gives it away a bit. Keep meaning to get up there to photograph the new NG stuff but the dam was out last time I tried.

Easy as the names on the board.
Not impressed with the train journey.
Mostly in cuttings or trees so only glimpses of the scenery now and again. :?

Is that Claypole level crossing?

Quite some years since I've cycled over it, but it immediately looked familiar

You have to keep switching side to see the scenery. Alternatively, use the cycle path (sustrans 45? the Mercian Way) that runs along side it (to varying degrees). On the cycle path you get more scenery plus you get a better view of the trains too - and it doesn't cost £20 for a return!
