  6. The Sand Sidings

    This was like a return trip for me, a place I'd visited years before. I always enjoy going back to a place and seeing how much things change over time. The change in this place was rather stark, nearly the complete line that went from CVR to the Sand Sidings had now gone. More importantly, so had most of the trains and carriages. Such a shame, end of mooch. Well, not exactly. With little else to do that day, and a fine early autumn day it was too, I decided to walk the entire route from CVR to the Sand Sidings. A rather jolly and splendid little sojourn it was too. Still plenty to see and kept the interest going throughout the walk. As for history, there's really very little I know regarding the Sand Sidings. I know it outlasted the local train station at Oakamoor and closed around 1988 to freight trains. Since then it was used as storage for Churnet Valley Railway. The first time I went it was alive with activity with the track in use, it's now slowly being reclaimed by nature. Hope you enjoy and see my Flickr for more images of this mooch.
