The Mid-Hants Railway
by Paul Crook
OVER 60 COLOUR PHOTOGRAPHS
We take a scenic journey on this heritage railway through the delightful Hampshire countryside. The Watercress Line, named after the leaf vegetable that was once sent nationwide from Alresford station, was acquired from British Railways in 1975. It opened in sections from 1977-85 and now runs for 10 miles between the market towns of New Alresford and Alton. This album, which includes a mixture of colour and black-and-white images, illustrates the line’s great appeal to enthusiasts and visitors alike.
'The net result is both an excellent introduction to the line and a souvenir of it, and we look forward to more volumes in this new series.'
(The Railway Magazine, March 2023)
'A must for all Mid-Hants fans.'
(Heritage Railway, Issue 303, February-March 2023)
'Middleton Press has embarked on a new series covering the life and times of preserved railways, and it is apt that the first book should be the closest to the home of the late Vic Mitchell, who penned over 400 'encyclopaedia' books before his passing in January 2021.'
