Only recently opened as part of the Downs Link, after lengthy legal wrangles, this fascinating little stretch of line has plenty to offer. Having stayed closed to the public since closure in the late 60s, it has remained the missing link of this stretch of line. Delightful walking towards Christ’s Hospital shows a charming overbridge and even a piece of track, some LBSCR railchairs (they won’t be there for long !) and some signal rodding.
The station itself was still very overgrown at the time of filming, but some superb views of the old platforms were to be seen and were filmed from numerous angles.
Also included is a trip along the old spur that was taken up in the late 1800s, which allowed trains travelling from Guildford to bypass Christ’s Hosptal station and join the current line to Arundel.
