Just after the River Nene is crossed the Peterborough to March line goes under the East Coast Main line (ECML) and alongside the Fair meadow car park. (This car park was were all the fairs were held and some times still are) In BR days you could take a good photo here, but trees were then planted alongside the line here and anti vandal fences put up. Photos are taken on this page from the NVR's car park and from behind the anti vandal fence.
