I started this journey to give something back to the Cancer charities that were there for me and my family and at the same time get my fitness back. I feel with your help of encouragement, donations and helping me with fundraising I was able to achieve it.

Old ITV programme about the Charfield Railway Crash 1928

Locals sharing memories at the Railway Tavern Pub in Charfield. People interviewed: Mrs Hazel, then "Jibby' Jones, then Reginald Pagett.

Thanks to Graham Tyndall for sharing this with us.

"It was broadcast on ITV many years ago and they kindly sent me a video of the program.
My father is in the video talking about the lady in black and the children's shoes. He worked on the railway in 
Charfield as a Ganger and we lived in a cottage just below the Plough Inn.
When the cottages were demolished we moved to Charfield Green on the corner right next to the railway line."

More information about the disaster.
