This stretch of line is very rural before Gorebridge is reached. The line is fairly heavily engineered with large embankments and deep cuttings. The railway is undergoing a vast amount of civil engineering, but it is in the more subtle form that really will not stand out once the railway is open, as opposed to some of the bridges and tunnels on the other sections. The photographs were taken after some of the recent very heavy rain, so the newly installed drainage is getting a thorough work out.
