In Britain

Situated in deepest rural Surrey, on the south side of the North Downs, Chilworth station is still open and services a small village on the orbital line between Redhill and Guildford. Nowadays, trains travel between Reading and Redhill, with some passing through on the way to Gatwick Airport. Read more about the station here.

This Southern Railway ticket is an example of a type from earlier in the 20th century. On the back, the ticket is stamped 30th September 1953 with some quite formidable terms and conditions for use. Just how quiet this station was is shown by this being only the 215th ticket sold, even of this elderly type that was obsolete before the 2nd World War, let alone after nationalisation in 1948 when the Southern Railway ceased to exist.


I help people and businesses organise their marketing, which saves time and stress. As part of this I created a straightforward way to help people develop anecdotes, which are the building blocks to confidence and assertiveness in groups of people. I help people strengthen their small-talk for social situations such as networking events and elsewhere. Stories about places are a great way to begin. Get in touch if want to start telling great stories.
