Class travel back in time with the Watercress line

Posted on 26th September 2016

Children from Bedales Prep School, Dunhurst where quite literally transported back in time to war-time Britain last week when Group 3 were ‘evacuated’ by their teachers to Arlesford Station and from there onto the Watercress Line. A short train journey to Ropley station saw them disembark to meet a billeting officer who allocated them their temporary homes. The children learnt about war time rationing and currency and had lessons in the spirit of ‘make do and mend’.
