Wessex Wanderers Railway Walks
Winter Get together
At the Railway Inn - Westbury
This years winter get together started off on the arrival of the 09.49 train from Bristol Temple Meads at 10.39 or the Weymouth train 08.53 arriving at 10.24 - the walk was attended by around 25 people and we walked until about 1 pm, going over towards Dilton Marsh (which is a request stop on the Westbury to Portsmouth Harbour line) - we were extremely lucky with the weather asit was dry and sunny and not too muddy underfoot
The meal started at 13.30 and was attended by 35 people, some people just joined us for the lunch and this was a choice of etiher beef or vegetarian celebration roast, with plenty of vegetables. The dessert was apple crumble and custard. Table layout was in a horse shoe shape and in a separate area at the back of the pub
