Woodford Halse

Looking South from Preston Road, Eydon, a concrete signal post can be seen standing perfectly upright by the down line near the skyline. There are two ways to look at this picture. Logically, rationally, and objectively, concrete signal posts are heavy, so they must be securely planted; and have no scrap value, so there is little point in removing them in open country. A more romantic analysis admires the stoicism of this post in waiting patiently for 50 years for common sense to return to British transport policy. I know which view I prefer.
