Peter Kerslake writes:My very favourite spot on Hemerdon Bank was here, just at the start of Chaddle Wood , access to which was gained by a long walk up from Stoggy Lane along a field, but the effort was always worthwhile 7820 Dinmore Manor with 3186 banking at the rear , and both from Laira shed , slog up the 1 in 42 grade with a freight from Marsh Mills yards on the 12th May 1956. What a contrast to today this view provides as the background fields are now covered by private and commercial developments , the vegetation extends down almost to the track and the field is now a housing estate! Many a happy afternoon was spent here , the advantage being that I could see what was coming up the bank long before it got within camera range.
