Bitton sign

About halfway along the Bristol and Bath Railway Path, a small section of the old Midland Railway still exists as the Avon Valley Railway, whose headquarters are here, at Bitton Station. There seems to be some local opposition to the railway; Boycott Bitton Station was written on the cyclepath not far away.
