We’re delighted to be taking part in this year’s Heritage Open Days. It’s England’s largest festival of history and culture, bringing together over 2,000 organisations, 5,000 events and 40,000 volunteers! It’s your chance to see behind the scenes at STR with guided Behind the Scenes tours over the weekend of 21st and 22nd of September and an evening talk on 21st September from Richard Graham, ex Chairman who will tell you all about the history of this fascinating railway.* Bookings being taken now.
Heritage Open Days are happening across Alston Moor this year so visit Alston Moor Heritage Open Days 2019 to find out what’s going on where, when and how to book. There’s a rich programme of walks and talks happening across the fortnight.
All the events are free.
