Fenced In

This evening we went out for our meal - I say 'meal'...

It was a take-away pizza from a pizza shop in Market Weighton! As it was a lovely evening we decided to stop and have it in the car and with the windows it was very pleasant! We stopped in one of my favourite parts of the world; the valley through which the York - Beverley line runs between Kiplingcoates and Market Weighton.

One thing which I find quite interesting is how the lineside fencing has remained for nearly forty five years since the last revenue earning trains ran - still standing guarding the 'railway' boundary after all this time. Not that there's much to disturb them really. The first photo shows a section of this fencing; still in good condition and much better than a lot of of other fencing you might have seen.

Only people and a few cars pass by now; people taking things at a leisurely pace or farmers going about their business. Looking in either direction the trackbed still lies dormant as time passes by in this peaceful part of the world.
