Beautiful pink flowers growing beside the A371 Axbridge By-pass

The slope where I saw these beautiful wild-growing flowers (garden escapees?) used to form the North face of the old Strawberry Line Railway cutting on the Northern edge of Axbridge. The railway itself has been long-gone - the modern by-pass following the route of the old railway line to the North of the Town - but if you look closely, you can still see where the old railway line used to run...

An Ordnance Survey map is a great help, in the UK. If you can see roughly where the old railway used to run, you will still be able to make out features like the weather-worn limestone bedrock where the railway was cut into the slope at Hillside, along the lower slopes of Axbridge Hill.
