Please  sign the petition to show support for the future of the Hythe Pier Electric Railway!

There is a 38 degrees petition live to sponsor or encourage charity sponsorship of historic Hythe Pier in order to obtain funding via the Lottery or otherwise and keep this vital link to Southampton open.

Why is this important?

The pier was opened in 1881 and the pier train is in the Guinness Book of Records as ‘the oldest working pier train in the world’. It provides a vital link to Southampton for regular commuters and tourists alike.

Red Funnel and or Blue Funnel would be interested in the ferry route itself but are reluctant to take on the expensive maintenance/upkeep of the pier.

Find the petition – HERE!
