Former railway bridges in the snow

The penultimate image from the roll I put through the Holga in the snow. Taken at Rother Valley Country PArk, looking back towards two former railway bridges, remnants of the time when this was an area dedicated to coal mining. The foreground bridge is disused and, while you can get up on top of it without any restrictions, it just carries a track through the trees, the stonechippings on the ground a reminder that it once bore railway tracks.

The bridge in the background now carries the Trans Pennine Trail on the section heading south towards Chesterfield.

Many locos once
Carried coal across these spans
An industry lost

Disused bridge
