The extension to Long Rock TMD
Not a great many people roam the minor roads across the Somerset Levels. For a cyclist used to exhausting climbs and exhilarating descents, these byways seem quite strange and disorientating. During the floods of 2014, many of the place names were featured on national news and passing through them in the summer brought the striking images back to mind.
Near Westonzoyland, where the Battle of Sedgemoor was fought, the last on English soil, is a fascinating little museum with a narrow gauge railway layout. It is a good place to learn how the Levels, much of which lie below sea level at high water, were, and are, drained.
(The above is well worth clicking on)
Not surprisingly, many buildings suffer subsidence.
Many thanks for this Colin, we'll see if Roger can organise a special trip to view!! Unusual but it is rail.
