Where was Oh Doctor Beeching filmed?
The majority of filming took place on the Severn Valley Railway as well as in studio. Arley station was used as Hatley station.
I loved this show as a child and still love it today. It would have been great if there were a few more series of this. The casting was exceptional especially with Stephen Lewis as the signalman. Sometimes good to go pack pre-computers.
