FOUND. On our grass when mowing, a small drone about 12cm square. If you think it might be yours mail me through the contacts page and if you can describe it I'll get it back to you.

Summer Season Finale.
Sunday 14th October was forcast to be wet all day, this changed to wet most of the day then wet for some of it. In reality there was no rain until nearly 10 that night so we were able to run the trains, all be it with one eye on the sky. By 4:15 you had all had enough and so had we, as a cold wind had got up so we decided to close early. So thats it for another Summer Season.
Now you have Sunday December 9th to look forward to when Father Christmas visits the track from 10:30 to 2:30.
Our next outing is on Sunday December 9th.
Santa will also be along with us too and there will be the usual extra attractions for these special days such as Santa's workshop, Tombola and cake raffle. The kitchen will have the usual drinks and cakes and (new to the kitchen), hot sausage rolls. As we are not connected with any other seasonal event that's nearby, there's no charge to enter and train rides are the usual 50p a go.
Don't forget that it all starts at 10:30 and will end at 2.30
The 2018 running season might have ended but this period allows up to close the track and make repairs to the rails and the track bed.
These pictures shows our chief mechanical engineer Geoff doing the work while an appreciative audience looks on, some with Tea others generally enjoying the late October Sun.
These pictures aren't posed, familiar faces being in eash one are pure co-incidence.
The latest Autumn 2018 edition of our newletter is available for download from the link on the Members Page.

We are in the North West corner of Field |Place, beyond the Tennis Courts. I suggest that you use the first Car Park entrance on the Right after enetering Field Place having gone past the indoor bowling club on your left. Go through to the second part of the car park and from there there's a fairly direct footpath by the bowling greens on your left up to the footbridge access to the club house as ground level access to the track and clubhouse is closed off on public running days. However, there is a buggy park by our entrance and disabled acccess is provided should it be needed.
