hang on tight!
This is great! We want a full record of the restoration of Spetisbury and in typically New S&D style this panoramic 360 degree moving image is the first fruit of that idea! To view click the icon, then click the same icon in the top LH corner, and choose the bottom option - it will then play full screen.
Like at Midford we'll be keeping a full record of the restoration of all of the S&D as time passes, and Spetisbury will be the second location where every piece of work and progress will be preserved for posterity.
It's important. In 50 years' time few people will believe that our thriving main line was once abandoned and overgrown. S&D history did not stop in 1966, or when the last freight train ran, or when the last rail was lifted. Of course, that last rail was never lifted, a few short stretches of S&D track remaining in situ throughout the Inbetweener Years, waiting for the trains to return.
There are many people waiting to start work down at Spetisbury - expect progress to be quick! There is such a buzz around the S&D now, but nobody should be surprised!
