Chasewater Railway Museum – Good to be back!

Good to be back!

It felt good to be open yesterday after being closed for a while. There were more than 150 visitors through the door – more than we could have hoped for given the weather at the start of the day.

I have been busy sorting out photographs, some taken around Chasewater and others taken around Hednesford’s old station.

There will be more when I manage to get them sorted and onto the database.
