Important Notice

Because of Mid Hants Railway timetabling arrangements the final day of MDOG free `bus services from Alton railway station to Chawton village will now be Sunday 1st October and not Sunday 24th September as previously stated on this web-site. We are sorry for this change in plan and hope that it will not cause you any inconvenience."

For seven Sundays this summer we will be running free vintages bus services from Alton Station to Chawton Village: 7th May, 4th June, 2nd July, 6th August, 3rd September and 1st October.
