Circa 1900 Christ's Hospital showing the already abandoned west side of the triangle.

Christ's Hospital Station looking towards Guildford along Platform's 6 & 7. The station was very unusual
in having two sets of double faced running lines, i.e. where you can alight the carriage from either side 16/07/2018.

Christ's Hospital Station. Considerable clearance work has taken place recently just like at Singleton,
this is to do with an extension to the Down's Link Cycle/Footpath that uses much of the route to Guildford.
How much of the platform's will survive the tidying up, only time will tell 16/07/2018.

Clydach circa 1900.

Culvert under the eastern portal's of the Clydach Tunnel's 17/07/2018.

Clydach was the last location for this couple of days explores a rather lengthy diversion on the way back north.
The reason for visiting the Clydach again is it is up for sale which has meant a tidying up of the site. The line was called
the Head's of the Valley's route and as can be seen from the Gradient Profile it was an extremely tough line to work
and suffered very badly in winter. The majority of the route was closed in 1958 so you can't even lay the blame with Beeching.
