‘Who can forget the images of the rail lines at Dawlish, Devon, suspended over the sea after the ferocious storms of 2014. Ever since, debate has raged over the options for an alternative inland route linking London with Plymouth and Cornwall.
Just last year, the first segment, between Exeter and Okehampton, was reopened. This bridge, at the bottom of our field, carried the original Okehampton-Tavistock line – closed now for fifty years.
My photo represents the chink of light that we may see trains traverse this bridge again – meaning Okehampton would no longer be The End of the Line!’
CONGRATULATIONS to Andy Hughes of Tavistock for his winning entry for a free copy of my book ‘Memories from The End of The Line’.
Why did this entry win?
In the view of the judging panel, they felt it was ‘eye-catching. We love how the sunlight is reflecting on the arch of the bridge with a shadow of a tree. A beautiful image and the words are very thought provoking’
My sincere thanks to the judging panel:
Nichola Kingsbury: artist, teacher and author of ‘Compass and Carrot’ and ‘The Bees and the Magic Tree’
My book sale continues through to the 15th of March. So head over to my bookshop now and snap up the few remaining copies
