Forestry Railway at Swarland

During World War 2 a small network of narrow gauge railway lines were constructed to serve forestry operations at Swarland Wood.  Cut timber was horse-hauled to a point close to the A1 road where it was transferred to road vehicles for onward movement.  The temporary track was lightly laid and there are no remains. The remains of a derelict and rusting wagon were dumped in the wood and were visible until the end of the 20th century.
