Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

For this weeks challenge I have chosen a photo taken on Exeter Quay. It is a railway turntable that has been ‘renewed’ to make a seating area. It’s actually full of history,  a rare example of Isambard Brunel’s broad gauge branch line built in 1867. It carried both broad and narrow guage track along the canal basin. Isn’t it great that it has been preserved and renewed?

  1. An inspired post, Gilly. Those Brunels’ – father and son, were quite the pioneering engineers. It’s amazing what they achieved. I got to the Brunel museum in London and the extraordinary feat of the first tunnel under the Thames, big into ship building too…

I would love to hear from you . . .
