Free guided walks on the West Somerset Mineral Railway

07/08/2009

Due to popular demand the West Somerset Mineral Railway project is increasing the number of places available on the next free guided walk on Tuesday 18 August. The walk is part of an on-going series of events exploring the West Somerset Mineral Railway.

 

Starting at 10am at Ralegh’s Cross Inn on Exmoor, the walk takes in the Incline and Winding House, which has recently been conserved as a result of Heritage Lottery funding.

 

Heritage Education Officer for the project Mary Olszewska said:  “Our guided tour volunteers do an excellent job of showing people around the WSMR whilst it is being conserved and we have been delighted at the response from the public.”

 

The West Somerset Mineral Railway Project was awarded a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund in 2007 to conserve and interpret the Mineral Line which was used in Victorian times to transport iron ore from the Brendon Hills to Watchet.

 

Booking is essential so please call 01398 323841 to avoid disappointment. Please note that walking boots or Wellingtons are essential, and that the Incline is a 1 in 4 climb.
