Walking the line
Along Cheadle there used to run a railway. There are still some tracks along the route, but over recent months someone has been stealing the rails and the sleepers. There was evidence further along that someone is clearing land for what is highly likely to be an un-approved building site. It’s a shame that these are disappearing, as it’s an odd look back into the past seeing these tracks. It makes me wonder what it would have been like to see a steam train going along in a place I know well, and what life would have been like for the people that travelled on it. My great uncle used to drive this very line.
