Hayling Billy Heritage

This wonderful short film by Mike Beel records a Hayling Billy Heritage Event organised on behalf of the "Friends of Chichester Harbour".

It shows the meeting at the Station Theatre and has great views of the theatre and also the billy trail. It also includes (at 3 minutes in) an epic 6 minute film showing a steam train journey from Havant to Hayling around 1963, shortly before the line was closed.

The following youtube videos show the train journey from Havant to Hayling and back again. People with sharp eyes may occasionally glimpse the large goods shed at Hayling Station which is now the Station Theatre.

Unfortunately there's been some copying between the various youtube videos so there is some repetition of the same shots in many of the videos. However, there's normally something new in each one.

The following, from 'unseen steam' are short but high quality film, some of which has been used in previous videos, usually at lower quality.
