1608 : Limited Exposure 5 - Flying Over West Vale
STAINLAND ROAD AND WEST VALE
The Stainland branch line - which ran from Greenland Junction, through West Vale and Holywell Green to Stainland - existed as a working railway line for just over fifty years. Even though it closed almost ninety years ago, some of the infrastructure still exists, in particular the magnificent viaduct that flies over West Vale. This photograph was taken from the top of it.
