Bank Top (Swinefleet Peat Railway) 1 September 2002

The southern end of the 3 ft gauge Swinefleet Peat Railway, pictured on 1 September 2002. The line coming in from the right leads to Bank Top depot and ultimately the peat works. After traveling for some distance alongside the gravel road, it traverses this ninety degree bend to head off alongside the Backwater Dyke to an area of peat diggings known locally as the Shoulder of Mutton. The entire system closed in July 2000 and all trackwork has now been lifted.
