Wangfield Garden Railway; unknown line

I bought this ticket (see attachment) as part of a bundle a while ago (with other miniature railway tickets) - it's a standard Edmondson, nothing on the back.

A search online for any variation upon "Wangfield" and "railway" has found nothing. Does anyone here know anything about this line (or have even heard of it!)? I suspect it may be someone's private line in their back garden or something along those lines. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

(One thing's for sure, they're doing well to have issued nearly 10000 tickets on opening day!)

This is/was a private 7.25" gauge railway near Botley in Hampshire. It was for sale a couple of years ago, so I do not know if it is still extant.

Wait what, there is a private line in Botley. I lived in Bishops Waltham for 21 years and never realised this!
