Chalk cutting at Saunderton, Buckinghamshire

L1479. Chalk cutting on the Great Western & Great Central Joint Line, Saunderton, Buckinghamshire, circa 1903. This impressive photograph is fine illustration of a Railway forging its way through the landscape. Although only one set of rails are visible here, this section of the Railway was later widened to include two lines of track. Louis P. Nott was the contractor who carried out work on this particular stretch of the Line (Princes Risborough to Grendon Underwood) between 1902-1905.
