Newington [NBR]

View just east of the site of the former Newington Station where the Up Line is still jointed rail. There is a low wall at the edge of the track here in the Up Cess. Looking at the 1947 OS map it seems that there was a dedicated footpath (FP) leading from the stairs coming down between no.69 and 69a Mayfield Road along the railway and finishing at a footbridge (FB) to enable passengers to reach the island platform. Again there is, on the right edge of the photo, the orange jacket of the safety Lookout.
