First published in News

Hollywood heart throb Hugh Grant has continued his tour of the Helston and Lizard area with a visit to Helston Railway.

Hugh, who was yesterday reported as being at Roskilly’s enjoying an ice cream, also spent some time at Prospidnick Station, where railway enthusiasts have been restoring the old Helston branch line tracks.

His first visit was to the buffet car, where volunteers Margaret and Pam were on duty.

Margaret said her “jaw dropped” when she realised who her famous customer was.

Hugh then took a 25-minute train ride along the section of restored track before returning to the station for a cream tea, where he was happy to give autographs and chat to staff and visitors.

While there Hugh signed the railway company’s petition to build a new access track, sidings, a platform,100-space car park, amenity and picnic space at Prospidnick Bridge, to the north at Trevarno Farm.
