Mid Hants Railway

Directions : Take A31, M27 and M3 to Winchester turn off (Junction 10). Turn right under M3 and take A31 towards Alresford. Through a couple of roundabouts and head for Alton, you will then enter the village of Four Marks. About 400 yards into the village is a turning on the left showing 'Medstead Industrial Estate'. Take this turning and go under the railway bridge. Take first right towards the Industrial Estate which you will pass on your left. Keep going and you will drive into the parking area of the station. If this area is full it is possible to park in the Industrial Estate, assuming that you are visiting on a week-end when most of the offices are closed.

Photo Interest : The newly rebuilt and renovated Medstead and Four Mark station is ⅔rd's of the way up a steep incline so that the engines are working hard. As the railway runs at week-ends throughout the year, there are some great shots to be had when most of the other attractions are shut down for the winter. The station has a girder bridge at one end affording great views of the trains climbing the 'Alps' as they are called by the railway staff. There are no drawbacks although it can be crowded on event days.
