Railway Lines

A view from Burton Walk. The bridge carries the Old Shoreham Road: further on the entrance to the tunnel under Dyke Road can be seen.

Railway lines introduce fingers of green into the urban environment and provide havens and corridors for wildlife. Their demand for  level tracks following smooth curves yields tunnels, bridges, cuttings and level crossings. These all serendipitously interject into the otherwise unbroken pattern of streets and rooftops providing relief, variety and a sense of place to the eye of the passerby.
