Walk: Sat 12 Sep 2015 2:00pm - 4:00pm
Venue: Start: Grovesend Roundabout Admission: FREE

Museum volunteers will lead a walk from the fields to Thornbury town centre, exploring the route of Thornbury’s former railway line and the location of the railway station.  Some of the remaining infrastructure of the Thornbury to Yate Midland branch line is still visible.

We expect this to be a popular walk, since a talk on this subject in February by walk leader Meg Wise was sold out, with 90 people attending.

The walk will last approx. 2 hours. We regret it will not be suitable for wheelchairs, as there is some uneven ground, with fields and stiles. Not suitable for children under 10 years.  No dogs please, except for guide dogs.

The walk will start at the Grovesend Road roundabout at the junction with Midland Way.

Afterwards, the museum will be open for people who have done the walk to see slides and pictures of the railway line and station.

This walk is being offered by the museum as a contribution to the national Heritage Weekend.


Tickets are FREE but places are limited and should be booked in advance by visiting, phoning or emailing the museum.
