Enthorpe Cutting

Like many others, Enthorpe’s deep cutting could quickly become impassable due to snowfall. In the winter of 1943, a passenger train, rescue engine and snow plough all got stuck there. Four years later, the railway was lost beneath drifts for three months, some of them as high as a telegraph pole.

Now a Site of Special Scientific Interest, the bridge at its northern end has been underfilled with the demolished remains of a five-arch, brick viaduct from further up the line.
