Charity description

Mid Hants Railway Preservation Society logo
The aims of the charity are to preserve, operate and exhibit for public benefit, educational and instructional purposes and to stimulate and encourage interest in, all kinds of railway transportation systems, vehicles and equipment; to foster and support railway preservation.

We operate a heritage railway along part of the former Southern Railway, a 10 miles journey between Alresford and Alton in Hampshire, using a fleet of heritage locomotives and rolling stock.

Whilst we derive income from c.125,000 visitors each year, this is typically only sufficient to cover operating costs. To sustain this heritage railway in the future, we need to raise funds -
  • if you would like to contribute to our general funds for improving our visitors experience, then please use the Donate now button on the right;
  • if you would like to contribute to one of our specific restoration or development projects, then please scroll across the Events below and Donate accordingly;
  • if you would like to start your own fundraising campaign to support MHRPS, then please use the Fundraise section .. and to sponsor one of these Fundraisers, use the Sponsor section.
We thank you for your support and hope to see you at the Watercress Line soon, if possible.
If you have any queries, then please email
