#Words and #PictureOfTheDay: 24/Mar/22

Can it really be just sixty years
since that dark entrance witnessed
smoke and noise and smell
as coal and iron and stone
passed through on metal tracks
How quickly trees and grass
bracken briars and bush
have recovered the land
and now a small stream
flows where once those
metal wheels pushed hard
on iron rails now gone

You can see a few more of my pictures in the Gallery.
Or, perhaps, search over 2000 of my images that you might like to use for book covers, calendars, greetings cards, jigsaws, advertising, or anything else you fancy in print or online, or to order as art quality prints to decorate your home or office.

    1. It’s currently sealed, Noelle, as there is a possible danger of collapse. However, there is a local society attempting to get lottery finance to have the whole length (about 270 yards) surveyed and then opened as a public footpath under the road. Something we’d love to see happen!

    1. It is astounding, Lynette, how quickly, and how thoroughly nature can remove all trace of our activity. And, yes, if we fail to recognise our place within the natural world, I think nature will one day remove the living us from history and return us in a few million years as mere fossils.
