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.
