Barn Site, now known as Barn Cutting, was a Deviation construction site just past Rhoslyn Bridge and named after the derelict barn nearby. Work started here in the summer of 1968. A considerable amount of spoil was removed from this site which formed an embankment to and well beyond Rhoslyn Bridge, the bridge being reached around the end of 1969. In the course of this work, the cutting was widened by some yards. It is occasionally alleged, untruthfully, that the Deviationists first put their cutting in the wrong place and had to move it outwards.
