Shillingstone Station Project   a talk by   Jack Bath   

Jack, Curator of Shillingstone Station Museum, described how Shillingstone was part of the original Dorset Central Railway and later its role along the Somerset & Dorset line, the through route twixt Highbridge and Poole, later being connected to Bath and beyond.
Then Jack  talked about the “Shillingstone Railway Project”  covering the subsequent period of restoration which has taken several years of hard work to return Shillingstone Station to its former glory.

Finally he showed the station today, its facilities and activities that it offers visitors, members and volunteers as they transfer from a station project to one of a railway project commencing with the recent laying of the 'down loop' line.
