an afternoon in dorset 1975

This was Maiden Newton, on the Dorchester to Castle Cary line, on 25 February 1975. It would still be, for another few months, a junction for the delightful Bridport branch. There was still plenty of railway infrastructure around, including the big cast concrete sign. I made a few trips here in the 70s, mainly to visit the Bridport line.

  1. This is the station used in an episode of To The Manor Born..

  2. Went there for many years down the Bridport line. Most trains I went on I was only passenger. Such a shame. Was a lovely line.
