Due to the COVID-19 emergency the Watercress Line Mid Hants Railway is temporarily closed to the public. The safety of our staff, volunteers and visitors is our most important consideration. You will know that the Watercress Line relies on ticket revenue to cover its operational costs, which currently work out more than £75,000 a month. Without money coming in from running services, the railway is eating into its financial reserves to survive. If you can help, please click on the Virgin Money Giving link below which allows you to donate a single amount or pay monthly if you're able to. You can also text WATERCRESS to 70085 to donate £10, texts cost £10 plus one standard rate message. Thank you for continuing to support us during this unprecedented situation. We hope to be able to welcome you back to the Watercress Line soon.
With great regret we have concluded that we must cancel the Walk the Line event scheduled for later this year. Given the inaccessibility off the line and restrictions on how we could deal with the potential for injuries we have decided that we are unable to run the event this year. We are grateful for the significant support that the event has received in the past and appreciate the efforts everybody has made to making the event so successful. We are very keen to replace the event next year with an occasion which captures the spirit of Walk the Line.
