Statement on Hengistbury Head Land Train:

Hengistbury Head Land Train - temporary mini bus replacement and land train trial run.

The Health & Safety Executive are still investigating an incident with the land train last October, unfortunately this is taking some time.  As part of the investigation the Council agreed to withdraw all of its trains at Hengistbury Head until the outcome of the investigation is complete. 

As we are moving to the busier time of year we have introduced a temporary minibus service to help with the most urgent needs while we look at options, where we hope to be able to introduce a more suitable interim service for the summer.  We are planning to trial a small seafront style train this week, with a view to using it as a temporary service until the investigation is complete.  Ideally, we’d like to bring the original trains back into use, but must wait for the HSE report and legal findings.

Our Land Rover service (see below) will be back in place by the middle of the week for beach hut owners and holiday makers wishing to take luggage down to less accessible beach huts.  


Tickets for the Hengistbury Head land train service are available from the guards - just pay on the train!
