Light Railway route

Hi everyone , my wife and I have lived in Bossall for over 37yrs fully enjoying everything that country living gives . I spent all my working days ( still doing part time ) as an engineer so maybe naturally drawn to the history of the S.H. Light Railway . For the last 10 yrs or so I’ve walked around the circular route which includes what we know as the cinder track , leaving the Bossall to Claxton road near the wood towards Bell View Farm then turning left along the edge of the wood . For years I thought this was the old route of the railway , but having looked at the info online it didn’t follow that track ! . I’m sure the old map is wrong , and the railway followed the edge of the wood along the track then across the road . The cinder track way always left as a wide cart type track , but the new land owner has reduced that to a narrow walkway , and doing so exposed many old brick that I presume were part of the railtrack . I took a few pics. that I will try and add .

Litter Pick

The Litter Pick scheduled for this Saturday will now not be a social event (sorry, that means no bacon sandwiches when you’ve finished!) but the Parish Council will be providing sanitised equipment for anyone who would like to contribute to cleaning up round the village. We will be at the village hall from 10.30am.
