Watercress People (1)

Episode 15

Welcome to Watercress People (1), where I have the opportunity to interview some of the people who make the Watercress Line happen – for you and me.

My first interview in Watercress People (1) is with Colin Fuller who was one of the original people involved when British Rail closed the line in the 1970s.

I then talk to Steve Crowther, the Chair of the Mid-Hants Railway Preservation Society. We discuss the roles of the Society and the Mid-Hants Railway Limited in creating the Watercress Line experience. Steve is also the Station Master at Alresford Station.

The final interview in Watercress People (1) is with Colin Marsh who is a Porter at Medstead & Four Marks station. We discuss life at this quiet country station.

There are no photographs to accompany this episode.
