Unique chance to combine a rare evening ride on the Wells & Walsingham Light Railway with a screening of this new compilation of little-seen archive footage. An entertaining look at Railways in Britain since 1898.

Walsingham has its own place in the history of railways. Our village station closed in the Sixties but is now a thriving small museum, as well as an Orthodox chapel open daily to pilgrims and other visitors seeking peace and history in our historic village.
