I would think so, Stephen. It was interesting to see the recently posted old footage of cars going up Bamford. The bank on the left side didnít exist so the track was far wider, almost to the boundary fence by the field. It may be that the surface has become so eroded that the top of the bank was the original level but I doubt it, the bank is heaped in the middle. I suspect the wall on the right will have to be rebuilt; it had become very unstable just before closure.

I look forward to the day! 👍

Bet that old concrete step is still there waiting for a crankcase or sump again
wasn't there a MCC memorial seat  put up there?

Tim, iirc, the memorial is at the top, beyond where the ď Section EndsĒ signs were placed. Quite appropriate, thinking about it!
