A tour of Bucks County
The SEPTA Fox Chase – Newtown line terminated in Newtown, Pa. The line has been inactive for years. The line stopped at County Line, Southampton, Churchville, The George School and Newtown. It carried freight and passengers.
The Newtown train station wasn’t much more than a small shed. It was the end of the line for the Fox Chase – Newtown Line.,
Tyler State Park is located just outside Newtown, Pa. at 101 Swamp Rd. Newtown, PA 18940-1151 (note – there are several entrances to the park and parking areas.
The Rose Bank Winery is located just outside of Newtown, PA.
Tyler State Park has miles of paved trails. The Schofield Covered Bridge crosses the Neshaminy Creek on one of these trails. The bridge was a victim of arson in 1991 and rebuilt in 1997. The bridge carries the Tyler Park bridle/hiking path over the Neshaminy Creek. Since it is not open to vehicles, you can park in the nearby parking lot and walk about 500 yards to the bridge.
We usually visit the Grey Stone in Newton when Monique and R.J. are playing there. We haven’t visited for dinner yet.
Shadybrook Farm puts on a fantastic Christmas Light display every year. It is one of the larger Christmas Light Shows in Bucks County.
Shady Brook Farm hosts entertainers in the Greenhouse which is adjacent to their Stone’s Throw bar. It is a unique and interesting venue.
Just across from the Wycombe Publik House, there are some rustic old buildings that are still in use by Histand’s Supply Company.
We visited the Wycombe Publik House in March 2018 for dinner. Our overall impression was that the restaurant provides great food, great service in a cozy atmosphere.
I was driving through Tyler State Park in 2006 and saw this guy sitting in a field.
