Drainage lines at a cutting near Woodford

Drainage lines at a cutting near Woodford

L3007. A fine view of the stone drainage lines which were installed in the cutting wall near Woodford, Northamptonshire. Lying on the near slope is a redundant boiler. Note the abundance of metal chairs lined up beside the contractor's railway: these are used to join the track to the sleepers.
