Tidenham 18 August 1984

It has been several years since the last train passed this way, as vegetation begins to encroach on the track at Tidenham on 18 August 1984. The Great Western Railway's Wye Valley route closed in 1964 with the exception of the southernmost section to Tidenham Quarry. Hidden in the bushes in the background is the bridge that carries the minor road from Tidenham to Lancaut over the line, and just a few yards beyond that is the entrance to Tidenham Tunnel.
