Blandford Forum

North of Blandford Forum, but looking South, this sweeping curve follows almost exactly the trackbed of the S&D (the original might have been slightly to the left of this view). Although I was expecting a tunnel due to the lie of the land, the solum runs along a shelf on the hillside in the distance. The barn on the hillside is of interest to rail fans, as the ground floor wall at the side opposite to the railway is built of upright used wooden sleepers.
