Also at Apedale

Ride the Apedale Valley Light Railway which is operated by our colleagues from the Moseley Railway Trust. The railway operates throughout Spring, Summer and Autumn. During the winter the railway takes a well earned break although there is a Santa Special Service each year. During the operating season, trains are run weekly on Saturdays with a monthly steam weekend. Each year they have a special gala weekend and run other events throughout their season.

The Apedale Community Country Park is right on our doorstep for you to explore, offering wildlife, fresh air and great views of the area.
