Fawley Hill Railway visit


Gold logo small (high resolution).png

Morning all

Fawley Hill Railway is in the attractive grounds of a property owned by Lord McAlpine just outside Henley. It is a steam locomotive museum with working lines and historic working full-size steam trains. It is run by volunteers (Fawley Museum Society) but is not open to the general public other than for organised groups by specific invitation on pre-arranged days. We have the opportunity to visit on Sunday 16 August 2015.

Entrance costs £10 for adults but children up to 9 years of age get in for free and young people 10-15 years of age pay £5. Rides on the trains are free and footplate rides on the steam engine may even be possible on the day.

There is a website at http://www.fawleyhill.co.uk/ to see more information.

We just want, at this stage, to gauge interest in organising a visit on 16 August - for Club members, their families and friends. This is just for the purposes of making a provisional booking of tickets - we're not proposing to organise anything other than to pre-book the tickets. Those who want to go will make their own way there and spend the day as they wish within the grounds. We will need to pay for tickets in advance in early June - so those who express an interest now we'll ask to confirm your interest in June and then you'll be liable for the entrance fee whether you do ultimately attend or not.

Please let Terry know if you are interested and how many may go (adults and children) - events@twyc.co.uk
