Lovely article in the Times last Saturday - nature notes by Jonathan Tulloch, stranded on Eaglescliffe station on the old Stockton and Darlington line, the first commercial steam railway. Robins and trees, and especially his reflections on the 'brownfield' site that the station has become. Industrial, abandoned and now back to nature, this was the site where 'masse carbon use went into reckless overdrive'. It, along with many other disused industrial sites, is now 'waiting to bloom'.
'There's forgiveness in nature - if we allow ourselves to accept it.'
'What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from'. T. S. Eliot
