A fascinating talk in the Alresford railway goods shed to discover how watercress production started in the historic market town of Alresford. Starting with its geographical qualities that make so much spring water available, to the unique growing methods and finally the nutritional and medical properties that have captivated the attention of consumers for over 2000 years.

The event is based at the Watercress Line, a railway with a long history with watercress production. Make a day at the railway by exploring the other things the railway has to offer as part of Heritage Open Days.

Free samples will be available at Ropley railway station over the weekend!
