View from Midford signal box, early 70s.

Another one of those photos when I cannot say which year it was taken. Several of us from the Bristol Railway Circle decided to have a walk through Devonshire & Combe Down tunnels on the S&D. As you can see from the photos, the track had been lifted through Midford, but was still in place through the two tunnels. We managed to walk all the way to Radstock, some of the old trackbed had been fenced off & we had to walk through a few “fields”, with cattle in them – roaming across the trackbed. I do have a few more photos, but like many others, poor quality, good memories though. I did count the sleepers in both of the tunnels, made a note of it somewhere!
