Volunteer Work Party Thursday 7 March 2024 at Owens Sidings, from 10am

 

 

This will be the 10th and last event of this winter’s work programme.

We have worked at this location a number of time in recent years, exposing the brick floor of a platelayers hut and opening up views on the north side, but this time we will be removing small trees and scrub the south side to let more light onto the line and encourage wild flowers.

 

Parking is available off the B487 at the back of the Aubrey Park Hotel near the M1. Exit the car park by the main entrance, turn right and take the track on the left up to the NL, and then turn right.. The site is about 1km further on.

 

Bring you own drink, and a packed lunch if working into the afternoon. We will finish by 3pm Biscuits will be provided at the morning break
