Dolly the Pig and Elias - Whalebone & Jean Atkin - Understories

Between the closure of the line in 1963 and the reopening of the Severn Valley Railway in 1970, Elias Thorpe continued as barman in the Refreshment Room and lived in the building. He did keep a pig in the Parcels Room! 

This is the first video from Understories, our collaboration with Jean Atkin. We are touring the show between March and June at Shropshire Libraries in the daytime. Current dates are on our Gigs and Tickets page - more will be added shortly. The CD featuring 10 new tracks and accompanying poetry book with 14 poems are available for pre-order on our Buy Page.
