Murhill Wharf

On the western end of the K&A is an old wharf which is now a private mooring. There being no boats moored there I stopped for lunch.
DSCF3558 There are still rails set in the ground that would have been used, I assume, for moving goods delivered by boat to the village.

It could well be that the rest of the rails are there,  most of them anyway, as they disappear in the undergrowth.

There is even, what appears to be, some kind of points mechanism.
