Friends Meeting House


Cromford & High Peak Railway (Part 2) – Paul Blurton

This talk, by Paul Blurton, the second in a series on the history of the C&HPR, will include an informative session ahead of the North West Group second visit to sites on the railway on 26 April 2018. The talk is complete in itself but attending will also add to the enjoyment of the site visits on the railway.

Further detailed information on the 26th April visit is available on the NW Events pages: Visit to C&HPR: 26th April. Meanwhile you may enjoy this six minute video of the railway (CHPR video) in operation around 1960. This map published in Railway Magazine in 1934 (MLS/SLS Rail Tour Map) was used in the notes for a tour 60 years ago may also be of interest.

The meeting will be held in the Friends Meeting House, 6 Mount Street, Manchester, M2 5NS starting at 2:00pm.
