Travelling to Alton with a stop enroute we join the
steam train on the 'Watercress Line' (the Mid Hants
railway), in the beautiful Hampshire countryside to Alresford.
After time for lunch in Alresford we go to the remarkable
Milestones museum of Hampshire Life at Basingstoke in the
afternoon. If you are old enough, there is so much you will
remember from the 1920s, 30s, 40s: if you are younger,
you will be fascinated by the way we lived then.
