Hewish Signal Box
Just before going into the coffee stop, took a small diversion to check out this old signal box on the Taunton to Bristol line. Long since been made redundant, the building has been converted into a private dwelling although an unmanned level crossing is a few yards away. Photo has been taken to show the magnificent display of daffodils and hyacinths that the owners have troubled to make. I thought this was the River Oldbridge running by but the maps show it as a new drainage ditch or rhyne.
Mind your head!
A shot of the same building from a different angle on the other side of the tracks. Just started to compose the picture when the alarms sounded, the lights flashed and the barrier started coming down. A rapid repositioning then took place to get out of the way. The injury would have been lessened because wearing a cycle helmet would have reduced the damage!
A good day out today, covered 24 miles in total.
