  1. From the album: Out and about in Somerset

    Sadly, it has been a long time since the Axbridge Engine Shed was in use for the purpose for which it was build on the old Strawberry Line railway in Somerset, in South West of England. Where the railway used to skirt the lower slopes of Axbridge Hill in the Mendip Hills of Somerset, that is now the route of the A371 Axbridge By-pass road. Here you go...You can sign the petition, if you want! http://www.thestrawberryline.org.uk/index.php
  2. From the album: Out and about in Somerset

    Nature returns along the route of an old, long abandoned railway line. The A371 Axbridge By-pass follows the route of the long abandoned Strawberry Line Railway in Somerset, S.W. England. Here to the North of the town of Axbridge, several different fruit trees can be found growing wild alongside the main road, where the railway line was originally cut into the hillside. The photo shows some kind of wild apple, (Quince or Crab Apple?) There are also several other kinds of apple and pair trees growing right alongside the road - not to mention blackberries and all sorts of other goodies! But if you want to stop and pick them, you will need to be on a bicycle, not in a car. Or you could try walking! And, if you are on a bike, you will need to be going slowly - not racing around like the wind with your tight racing tights on - and your streamlined flashy helmet - trying to go just as fast as the flippin cars all the time?!!!
  3. From the album: Out and about in Somerset

    Another view of the old Strawberry Line railway cutting to the North of Axbridge in Somerset - now occupied by the A371 Axbridge By-pass road.
  4. From the album: Out and about in Somerset

    A lot of people don't like brambles - except in late summer when they are loaded with juicy blackberries... Pick all you can - for free! This little patch was seen growing out of the rock face where the old Strawberry Line Railway was cut into the hill side, (Known as Hillside, funilly enough!) on the lower slopes of Axbridge Hill - now the route of the A371 Axbridge By-pass.
  5. From the album: Out and about in Somerset

    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.
