William Huskisson MP was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.

I have only been there twice, the second occasion being my retirement. It sells beer, so it's fine.


No idea what the gallery is all about. I don't recall seeing anyone that good looking there, at least not until my third pint.

Observed the new look cutting from train level on Saturday, it's quite impressive. And later I even cycled along the realigned cycle path. It's been moved from the rugby club's drive to running along the embankment edge, presumably because the playing fields are being built over. From the cyclist's pov. this realignment is not a good thing, mainly because visibility of the road is limited by the bridge parapet. But the track work is coming along nicely.

That bridge parapet is a bit urgent following the addition of extra courses of bricks and coping stones. Given the electrification won't pass under them for a while, it seems a bit OTT, in more ways than one.

Been out for a bit of exercise this morning, and took a few photos:

1. Site of Ashley Hill station, looking towards Narroways. This is clearly a major access point for the works:



2. North of Stapleton Rd viaduct, beside M32 looking towards the viaduct. Even I got the message!



3. Under the viaduct. Something's afoot...
