The Hay Inclined Plane at Coalport, Shropshire – a 2021 addendum. …
In March 2021, Tony Jervis, an on-line acquaintance, sent me some photographs from visits that he made over the years to the inclined plane at Coalport. These are shared below with his kind permission. 
Tony comments: “The site has been tidied up somewhat since I was first there, with more clearance of overgrowth at the summit, but has there been a landslip pushing the tracks sideways partway down? The Gorge area has been prone to landslips for years. ….. Much work has been done in recent years to landscape and stablilise the area.”
The pictures are shown annotated as Tony sent them to me.
