Many thanks to GWR for providing this information.
Hope your keeping well and the sun is still shining in Cornwall. I thought you may be interested with these couple of photos. We paid a visit to our son on the weekend, he lives near Box in Wiltshire and I took the opportunity to visit the main line which was closed over the weekend for major drainage works. With the assistance of a very helpful engineer working at the site these are a few of the shots (it was he who took the one which is on the line itself) taken on Sunday afternoon of the work in progress at the western end of Middle Hill Tunnel.
Cheers Adrian Many thanks
