Lets Imagine a Branch Line Railway

Price £12.95


John Betjeman visits the S&D branch line from Evercreech Jct to Highbridge and Burnham in 1963.

This film first produced in 1963 is now released on DVD.
Sir John Betjeman CBE became famous for his defending of Victorian architecture and his love for railways in particular. In the year of the Beeching Report, the BBC made this film which was written and presented by Sir John travelling on the train from Evercreech all the way to Highbridge. It includes scenes at most of the stations along the route and a walk around Highbridge Works. A totally unique look at this long-lamented branch of the Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway
