Lydham Heath

This obscure country railway was originally intended to connect to the Minsterley branch, and/or the Cambrian near Welshpool. But they ran out of money, so this station became a reversing junction, rather than a through station. The single platform was behind the wall on the right; the remains in the foreground are part of the cattle dock. The truck trailer on the left has somewhat taken root over the last 20 years or so; perhaps, like the long-abandoned HAA cripple at Nantgarw colliery, it will eventually have to be cut up on site.
