Image Notes

The B6259 Hawes to Kirkby Stephen road runs almost parallel to the railway line between Moorcock Tunnel North Portal (Structure ref 257630) to Birkett Tunnel South Portal (structure ref 264300).  For the most part therefore access to structures along this length of the line is easy. Many structures can be viewed from the roadside (parking places are readily available) or by way of footpaths and Access land.

This image taken from Bridge 132 - Ais Gill (Structure ref 259800). 

The image also includes Ais Gill Summit Sign (Structure ref 259740) and Milepost 259 3/4 (structure ref 259750) and the sites of the former platelayers hut (structure ref 259690) and Ais Gill Signal Box (Structure ref 259710).
