Two pictures I have taken of the nearly completed works undertaken on Dudwel Lane due to the wall and landslip which caused the train derailment of Feb 2011.

Picture 2 (inset) was taken from across the valley at Siddal and shows the new substantial retaining walls which probably would not be appreciated from Dudwell Lane itself.
