Short but very, very sweet! Take a journey along the Evercreech Junction to Highbridge and Burnham Branch with Sir John Betjeman in 1963! Filmed by the BBC, It includes scenes at most of the stations along the route and a walk around Highbridge Works. A totally unique look at this long-lamented branch of the Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway.

In a special arrangement with the BBC, we release for the first time on DVD this delightful film produced and screened in 1963.

In the year of the Beeching Report, the BBC made this film which was written and presented by Sir John travelling on the train from Evercreech all the way to Highbridge. It includes scenes at most of the stations along the route and a walk around Highbridge Works. A totally unique look at this long-lamented branch of the Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway.
