In December 1944, a 13-year-old boy discovers he can mysteriously travel between two worlds
This haunting ghost story has some excellent opening shots filmed at Medstead & Four Marks station on the Mid-Hants Railway. Unusually, no trains feature, but perhaps the production crew for once felt that a historically inaccurate steam train would affect continuity so left it out altogether. The film was adapted from Lucy M. Boston’s children’s novel The Chimneys of Green Knowe (1958).
