Did you go up Paradise Bottom? My wife and I certainly did...

No, didn't go that far up the gorge...but I hope you and your wife enjoyed the experience.  Wink

Yes thanks johneyw, you jogged my memory, as I walked up Nightingale Valley last year as part of a circular walk from Clifton, through the woods and under the suspension bridge. Very enjoyable.

The conversation is often sparkling, with the occasional whine.  Cheesy
Depending on whether your glass is half-full, or half-empty!  Cheesy

Interesting that if you look on Journey Check today under Improvement Works it makes no mention of the fact that there are no trains through Swindon today!  I did think of taking a trip to Bristol today and would have tried to do if it were not for this Forum.

I also notice today that on https://www.gwr.com/GWR there is no message to say "there is generally a good service on the GWR network". Does this mean that a "good service" not longer exists?

So what is happening between Didcot and Chippenham this weekend that they have closed the line for three days?

Train services running through these stations may be cancelled, delayed by up to 60 minutes or revised. Disruption is expected until 14:00 15/05.
