59101 Patney & Chirton 9 August 2007

59101 Village of Whatley passes the site of Patney & Chirton station with the 7A09 07:12 Merehead to Acton Yard Yeoman 'jumbo' stone train on 9 August 2007. Even though the station was closed in 1966, the footbridge survives marooned in the fields on a little used footpath. This is the view looking west from the bridge, with the space on the right marking the site of the Devizes branch lines. The station had four platforms, which explains the extreme length of this footbridge.
