After the heatwave and sunshine of last weekend, today was decidedly chilly and grey but the team cracked on with the jobs at the station. One member mowed the grass on the ‘up’ platform whilst the others continued clearing the embankment of overgrowth behind this platform. The vegetation along the top of the bank will just be trimmed and in time this will form an attractive hedge, providing some shelter to the station site. In the process we uncovered the tensioner for the railway telegraph pole which used to stand on this embankment. One of the aims of the station project is to encourage wildlife, and several habitats have been created, including one for slow worms. Several new signs have recently been provided to welcome visitors to the station, and more signage is planned for this year. Finally, a selection of second-hand railway DVDs has been generously donated to the station project, and these are available to purchase on work parties or special event days.
