800010 Shipton 21 February 2018

800010 Michael Bond passes Shipton on 21 February 2018 with the 1P25 09:54 Great Malvern to Paddington GWR service. It was unexpectedly sunny during the morning, so with hardly a cloud in the sky, I drove the short distance to Shipton. No sooner had I got there than the clouds appeared, and within ten minutes it was full cloud. It's enough to make you think someone is controlling the weather and playing games with you! However, the dull conditions (which in fairness is what was forecast!) allowed me to take this view from the north side of the line. Recent vegetation clearance has opened up the view of FWP Matthews flour mill.
