work party 17th August

Well, not strictly one of our usual Sunday work parties, but members do go up and work at the station at other times. Today one member (me….) cleared the vegetation from the site of the signal box. Eventually this area will be fully cleared and some  minor ‘Time Team’ excavations made to see if any artefacts remain. In time we hope to provide information boards here explaining how the signal box worked. These foundations remain fenced off due to their proximity to the bridge parapet. Several passers-by remarked how much they enjoy visiting the station, which was good to hear. I also noticed a large hole in the bank behind the ‘up’ platform and wondered what animal lives here. A rabbit maybe? Or a fox? Either way it’s good to know wildlife has made the station its home.
