Ascott-under-Wychwood Rail Chair 6 June 1979

A Great Western Railway cast iron chair dated Feb 1906 still in situ in the goods yard at Ascott-under-Wychwood on 6 June 1979. The small yard, which by this time was only used for stabling the occasional track machine, had obviously not seen any maintenance for a long time. Just look at the amount of rust on the railhead, and the terrible condition of the wooden key!
