Railway walk raises £7,000

Organsied by Robin Higgs and Derek Seaton Walk The Line has raised £7000 towards the restoration of a period locomotive: 75079 British Railways Standard Class 4MT.

More than 400 walkers took part all travelling to Alresford Station from either Alton (10 miles), Medstead and Four Marks (6 miles) or Ropley (3 miles). Early walkers managed to avoid the rain but those who walked in the afternoon were quite wet when finally arriving at Alresford.
