Two shots of the platform looking north east towards the London Road level crossing. At first glance it appeared the line was double tracked to the buffers seen on the right. However I know it is single tracked so I am pretty sure the other line must be a head shunt or reversing siding for the extensive Bicester Military Railway located to the south of the town.
Here is the notice announcing the closure of the same footpath. It will be reopened via a footbridge ove the new embankment.
Plant in the work site. The Varsity line runs behind by the tree line.
