Journey to Wisbech
IN response to today’s letter from Alma Walsh (memory lapse) I suspect the answer to be as follows: She came from London to Wisbech (via Cambridge) and arrived at Wisbech East.
IN response to today’s letter from Alma Walsh (memory lapse) I suspect the answer to be as follows:
She came from London to Wisbech (via Cambridge) and arrived at Wisbech East. From there she would either walk (or be transported) to Wisbech North station and (from there) back to Wisbech St Mary on the old M and GN.
A second explanation is that she would have gone to Peterborough North and from there travelled via March to Wisbech east and continued as above.
Yes, of course, Wisbech St Mary would have had a station at that time (1939). She could even have got direct to Wisbech St Mary from Peterborough North but was probably either confused or mis-directed. Easy to see that such a thing could have happened. Even I have travelled over this route.
