57302 Combe (Grintleyhill Bridge) 20 September 2014

57302 Chad Varah passes Combe on 20 September 2014 with the 1Z54 08:15 Hereford to Bath Northern Belle luxury private charter. 47790 is bringing up the rear. The tour was organised by St. Richard's Hospice, a Worcestershire cancer charity. This almost aerial view is from Grintleyhill Bridge, on a bridleway between the villages of Combe and East End. Although a dull and misty morning, the weather was actually much better than was forecast. The Met Office had predicted heavy rain, and the local paper was warning of 'Potential disruption to transport and outdoor activities becoming dangerous.' Not much danger standing here on a surprisingly warm morning with not a breath of wind!
