Broadway 14 October 1979

The site of Broadway station, on the disused Cheltenham to Stratford-upon-Avon line, pictured looking towards Willersey on 14 October 1979. The platforms were situated just beyond the road underbridge, underneath the Scots Pine trees (an obvious giveaway for a GWR station site!). The goods yard was situated behind me to the right. The line closed in 1976 and tracklifting was in progress when I visited three years later, as can be seen by the lifted rails on the up line. Note the piles of fishplates and track keys on the down line.
