Full Description

A walkover survey in October 2007 noted that the present track leading from the B9152 to the railway underpass is, to the west, relatively new and, to the east, the original alignment which probably dates from 1862. The original section is a deeply excavated cut with a rubble retaining wall on the upper side. <1>
