walk the line

On Saturday 30th July the Somerset & Dorset Railway Trust organised a guided walk lead by Jonathan Edwards along the trackbed from Spetisbury to Blandford Forum. After refreshments and a history of the station provided by members of the Spetisbury Station Project team, the group of around a dozen set off. Jonathan gave a series of very informative talks along the way at Charlton Marshall Halt, the site of the original Blandford station at Blandford St Mary, the viaduct across the River Stour and the remains of Blandford Forum station. Some new facts about Spetisbury station were also revealed.

For information on other walks and activities organised by the Somerset & Dorset Railway Trust see the SDRT website.
