Saturday Sky with Station

Dovercourt station, a ten-minute walk from our house, is the second last stop on the single-track line between Manningtree and Harwich, named the "Mayflower Line" because the captain of the Mayflower, Christopher Jones, was born in Harwich.

There used to be one further stop - the "Train Ferry" at Harwich Harbour, which carried railcars to Zeebrugge, until the service was discontinued in 1987.
