SIR - May I ask for your readers' assistance in solving the mystery of a disused narrow gauge railway located in Tewin.

Many years ago, while walking in the area of Tewin Water, I became aware of a disused railway track bed.

The track appears to have run from Tewin Water, north east through Dawley Plantation and on to Dawley Wood, finally stopping above a disused chalk pit.

I am aware that during the First World War the pit was used as a range, there are still parts visible to this day.

Are any of your readers aware of the line, what it was used for and when it was taken away?

Paul Cox, Grangewood,
