Moredon 22 August 1978

Looking north along the last few yards of the extant former Midland & South Western Junction Railway at Moredon, near Swindon, on 22 August 1978. This section of line was retained for the benefit of the nearby Moredon Power Station. The track was lifted shortly after this picture was taken, but surprisingly this farm occupation bridge still survives. However, instead it of it being in a rural location, as when photographed here, it is now next to the busy Thamesdown Drive, which is effectively a ring road for the western expansion of Swindon.
