Llanvihangel (Monmouth)

Looking South from the road overbridge in 1987, the remains of a platform at Llanvihangel can be seen on the right. The narrow gauge trackbed to the right of the green fence in the background is the long closed Grwyne Fawr Reservoir Railway; which like many such railways, was built to serve reservoir construction; and abandoned once its role was complete. (thanks to John Thorn for confirming this). This location is now very overgrown, but the shallow embankment in the field to the South of this view is probably still there.
