Mid Hants Railway (Watercress Line),
Hampshire

Heritage Lottery/Mid Hants Railway funded phased development of Ropley engineering works to provide enhanced carriage workshop and extended locomotive workshop facilities to improve the railway’s ability to restore and maintain its heritage railway assets (steam engines, coaches and wagons).  

The project also aims to support its volunteers and paid staff by upgrading mess, welfare and shower facilities and to enhance the visitor experience to this major south coast visitor attraction.

The first phase of the project was severely damaged by fire shortly after completion and was rebuilt before the second phase commenced.

Contract value:
£2 million
