A section of the Strawberry Line near Winscombe in Somerset has been closed after a landslide.
The heritage trail only recently reopened on 25 May, after it was closed for 18 months for Bristol Water to lay a new water pipe as part of their £27M water supply resilience scheme.
The area is now closed again, after heavy rain caused a landslip late last week.
A North Somerset Council spokesman said: “If you’re heading out to enjoy the Strawberry Line please be aware it’s currently closed between the A368 Sandford and Winscombe and the Ilex Lane bridge.
“This is due to an embankment collapse following the very heavy rain on Thursday night and Friday morning.”
Reopening of the trail was originally delayed after a rock fall, poor weather and roosting bats in the Shute Shelve tunnel disrupted works.

The tunnel has recently been resurfaced and relined with a reflective lining. Bristol Water is also in the process of improving the lighting.
When complete, the Strawberry Line will create a continuous 48km traffic-free path spanning Mid-Somerset from Clevedon to Shepton Mallet and will follow as much of the old Strawberry Line railway trackbed as possible.
