Lots to see at the Lavender Line. It's a small preserved line. Step onboard for a 2 mile round trip on a preserved train. Small cafe and large car park.

Had a ride on the lavender line but didn’t realise how short it was. Didn’t think it was very good value for money. Wouldn’t ride this one again, my son was very disappointed.

A visit while en route home, timed to enjoy an excellent breakfast! Unfortunately the steam engine was out of service...but that's the nature of these heritage lines. A diesel substitute and guards van trip were enjoyable. Thanks to all the volunteers.
