Railway embankment reflected in floodwater
Railway embankment reflected in floodwater
The former Tewkesbury to Upton-upon-Severn railway, which closed in the early 1960s, reflected in floodwater viewed from the Mythe causeway. At the time of taking this photograph I didn't realise that this would be the last time I would see this railway embankment with the trees and bushes growing on it. Within two weeks work would begin to remove this old railway embankment.
