Old walls, like this one, fascinate me. This is actually part of an old railway bridge. Trains passing underneath might have taken troops, or supplies, on the first part of their journey to France in 1914. In contrast, we’re looking at this year’s new growth of ivy (the paler leaves.)
Those bricklayers knew how to build, all right. It just saddens me that they had to do that work for a pittance. But that is another story.
