Attached is a Google Earth image for reference, North is top and West to the left of the shot. Brabazon Way is at Bowerhill to the south of Melksham, this is approximately the boundary of the former RAF Camp that was located there from 1940 to 1965. The camp site is now the Bowerhill Industrial estate with a large housing development close by. The Devizes branch ran along the route Brabazon Way now takes and in the hedge close to where I parked my silver Metro my wife found a 1882 GWR boundary post. I've since found several more of these posts with the same date along the route the line took and I believe that this was when the line was re-surveyed. At the time of my exploration in 2010 there were many abandoned relics of the line evident including rusty track fittings and sections of old rail that had been used for fencing. I came across a concrete GWR stile where a public footpath used to cross the line and there were many old wooden sleepers that had been used as fence posts, these had been torn out and piled up ready for disposal following work on the new Knorr Bremse factory.
The stadium at Redruth used to give a good panorama of passing trains at Drump Lane - about 600 yards away - so if the match was a bit boring!!! Thanks Alan for this reminder of sporting days and trains, glad we won.
