Hook Hampshire


Railway Underpass - Hook

Posted by Ken Maxwell on 07 Aug 2015 07:57:20


I was looking at some photos of my time working in London in 1989 and noticed a photo of a site visit to the construction of an underpass beneath the railway at Hook, Hampshire (taken on 4th May 1989 – attached). I thought your website may be interested in this snap (can’t believe it was 26 years ago).

Looking at Google Maps/Street View, I would say that the road that now uses this underpass is Griffin Way at Hook. Is anybody able to confirm this?

I recall Hook being a very pleasant looking town and I had a great meal (and a beer) in a pub restaurant with my office colleagues before heading back to London.

Anyway, best wishes from Sydney, Australia.

Hi Ken

Amazing photo, this was taken on Griffin Way outside the Alphabet offices building.

I took this photo to show what it looks like now.

Kind Regards
