On the weekend of 29th and 30th  September 2018 a rail replacement service (bus) was provided between Hereford and Shrewsbury stations to allow work to replace the tracks running thorough Craven Arms.

These pictures also form part of the Township Project – a focus on Craven Arms, Shropshire.

*These images represent and uncurated collection of images. At the end of the project, I will curate a collection of photographs that, when considered together, best represent the project.
