Hektor Rous (of the Henham Estate) got in touch recently to offer us about 20 lengths of old SR track, which had been used many years ago to create support for a weeping larch tree. The structure has now collapsed and is risking the health of the tree, so Hektor wishes to remove the rails and start again with a fresh support. We thank him most sincerely for getting in touch. Visit our Newsletters page (August 2022 issue) to see the structure in better days, and read about Geoff  Crabbe’s visit to Henham.

    Hi – Amazing how much rail is still out there! I’m happy to help with a work party to go and get it (if such is planned). After all, tho’ it’s only a few bits of rusty metal, it’s not as if there’s lots of genuine SR artefacts available, so it probably behoves the Trust to do its best to save what little there is.

      We’ll let you know when a working party is organised, James! Thanks for the offer…
