The Mid Hants Railway has announced that more than 950 walkers, including children and dogs, dusted off their walking boots recently to raise over £14,750 to help preserve an important part of the line.

Families took part in either a three, six or ten-mile walk, each offering them the opportunity to experience the railway from a completely different view.

Walk The Line is an opportunity for all the family to see the Watercress Line from a different view and play an important part in securing its future.

The money raised will go a long way to keeping Hampshire’s heritage railway on track.

The funds raised from the sponsored walk will be used to re-ballast a section of 1000 yards of track at Wanders Curve between Medstead and Four Marks and Ropley and maintain the trackbed.
