River Tone and Railway Depot



Well, the first photo. Not exactly glamorous but it is very local to me, a sight I see regularly.

The grid reference is 323500,125500 looking north.

It is the junction of the River Tone & the Bridgwater and Taunton Canal, the red-brick building is an old British Railway depot, the railway runs alongside, it's a nice indicator that you have seconds to go before reaching Taunton Station.
The water in the foreground looks quite polluted, lots of debris floating around but I am not sure if that is an indicator as there does seem to be a lot of wildlife about. Swans Ducks and Coots are all over the place.
There are some great paths around here, good for walking or running but it is very close to the scene of a recent murder so it would not be my route of choice right now.

Please leave comments and corrections.
Mark

Well, well, I'm so surprised that I was the one to inspire you to start Taunton DP.

It was Pamela in Tenerife that got me started.

Welcome aboard.
