Kelston Station

Post by Geoffers » Sun Oct 20, 2019 11:06 am

It's good to be back, thanks!

I was looking at a photo of Kelston Station, as it was, and trying to work out exactly where it would be on the Bristol to Bath Railway Path. Can anybody indicate, using this recent image from Google maps? Image

IIRC it was just east of the river bridge. You can see in the mid-foreground the light-coloured farm-track which I believe was also the footpath from Kelston. Access from Saltford was by means of a segregated path alongside the railway over the river-bridge. Remnants of the platform (at least on the Down side) are still visible in the undergrowth. I pass that way from time to time and often look out for it when walking back from lunch at the Bird-In-Hand :-)

Thanks, that makes sense. I shall have a look myself next time I'm on the path!
