The restoration at Spetisbury (and to a lesser extent Midford) is throwing up lots of bits and pieces from the original line. We are also getting a lot of historical enquiries about the old line. We'll also need extensive records of buildings and infrastructure of the original line as we start to rebuild.
I suspect that these strands should be brought together in the person of a HERITAGE OFFICER. The heritage officer's role would be to store and identify artefacts safely, to answer enquries about the original (as opposed to the new) line and to build up an extensive archive and record of the route.
Does this appeal to any New S&D members? If you are interested please email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone Steve Sainsbury on 0117 3738973.
