I've posted a few items recently featuring Penrhos Cutting and rail yard (with the big puddles) so, I thought I'd add some historical background for those of you who have seen them.
I think this view shows the Penrhos viaduct in the background, the piers for this are still standing but, of course, being allowed to slowly disintegrate, sadly.
The piers shown in the photo, linked, still stand today but, are very overgrown, with plants and trees growing on them.
In the background to these piers, stood a lovely old road bridge, now filled in and the road replaced by a wider, new road.
It is a real shame, in my humble opinion, to see something like this, allowed to fade and disappear. There isn't even an information board telling people what this was.
This forms the start, for me, of several beautiful walks, varying from a couple of miles to 9 miles, through ancient forests and past a beautiful castle.
