Is this the most expensive rail journey per mile anyone has come across?

I recently travelled by rail from Portsmouth to Stalybridge (near Manchester) for £59 (advance return).

The fare from Manchester Airport to Glossop, Derbyshire (21miles) is £5.80.

I thought our new rail company (South Western Railways) were going to be more customer-friendly?

A pity that no coach company does the Portsmouth-Southampton Airport trip.
