Watercress Line

Watercress Line Review

New Alresford, 8 miles northeast of Winchester by A31 and B3046, is the starting point of the Watercress Line, a 10-mile-long railroad reserved for steam locomotives that runs to Alton. The line (named for the area's watercress beds) takes you on a nostalgic tour through reminders of 19th-century England. New Alresford, crossed by the River Alre, has some antiques shops and Georgian houses.
