Malvern Common/Builders Yard

Just a quick update from me this week while I am on holiday. This short series of pictures fills a small gap in my route map, showing the modern County Builders yard which sits on the former site of the Tewkesbury Junction sidings complex. There is not much to see here now, but the tree line from above (as ever) provides a clear sign of where this last stretch of the Midland line to Ashchurch ran before it joined the main Hereford-Worcester branch just a few hundred yards away.

The view north towards Great Malvern roughly in line with the route of the old railway.
A little further along - the line ran straight through where the large shelving units stand now.
The rear of the site gives a little more detail away - the tree line matches the old railway line as it ran south.
The tree line looking south from the builders' yard. This tree line continues behind the houses on St Andrew's Road before emerging onto the south-eastern corner of Malvern Common.
