70000 Heyford 11 April 1993

7MT 4-6-2 70000 Britannia approaches Heyford with the Pathfinder Tours 1Z39 08:10 Cardiff Central to Stratford-upon-Avon 'William Shakespeare' railtour on 11 April 1993. The BR pacific had worked the tour from Didcot. Just visible behind the loco are the newly planted trees which soon obliterated the view of Rousham church which can be seen in the background gloom. A mere fourteen years later the location is hardly recognisable.
