Upwey Friends revive history!
The new addition to Upwey Station is unique, as Rydon Signs undertook detailed research of the original Victorian board which once graced the station and have produced a high quality replica. This means that the Friends of Upwey Station, who help to care for and enhance the station on a voluntary basis, have also returned a part of their community’s history. The project has been jointly funded by South West Trains and the Heart of Wessex Rail Partnership, and Councillor Peter Finney of Dorset County Council joined the Friends of Upwey station to inaugurate the new addition to the station. Amongst the other guests joining the celebration were Friends of Dorchester West and Wool stations and Councillor John Ellis from the Dorset Councils Partnership.
