Bald Explorer and West Grinstead Station

The Bald Explorer is off to explore Knepp Castle and an abandoned railway station in West Grinstead in West Sussex, near Horsham. On what was once called the Steyning Line are the remains of a railway station that once served a route between Horsham and Shoreham, but in 1960s Dr. Richard Beeching brought down his axe and chopped the line dead.

But the memory of the line is strong.

    Hi again,
    I’ve realy enjoyed these 2 new Bald Explorer episodes. I like the older ones too!
    I’m in the USA and with so many Anglophiles over here you might think about trying to get it on our public television. Of course I don’t know how to do that but just a suggestion.
    Keep up the good work!
