The Old Train Line

The old Sprat and Winkle railway line ran through our school field and every class is named after the places the train stopped at – Redbridge, Clatford, Mottisfont, Horsebridge. Sprat and Winkle stands for fish and snail.  It ran from Redbridge to Andover to Southampton but the trainline was dismantled about 60 years ago when it was decided that the train wasn’t being used enough.
