Gotherington 7 October 1978

Two years after the line closed as a through route, the Cheltenham to Stratford-upon-Avon line is pictured at Gotherington on 7 October 1978. When I revisited this spot almost exactly a year later the track had just been lifted. Now, of course, the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway have reinstated this section of line. Just out of sight around the corner is the Dixton road overbridge, while a short distance behind where I am standing is the now reopened Gotherington Halt.
