A Bridge but no Track by Andy Beecroft
A Bridge but no Track

This is the trackbed of the former Market Weighton to Driffield Railway. After approximately 100 years of usage, this is all that remains of the railway at this point - a bridge over nothing. The railway was closed in 1965. Curiously, the trackbed is now farmland and this section is about 2m above the old trackbed under the bridge.
