The Surrey Group’s Sales Stand will be available to supply the latest exclusive L&B products from Woody Bay.

(b )Somerset & Dorset Railway presentation on Saturday 26th Novemberr

Hopefully this will be the first in a series of events for a new form of group activity intended to provide a sociable event within a theme of railway interest.

Surrey Support Group stalwart John Buck has agreed to kindly provide a lecture/presentation about the Somerset & Dorset Railway. John Buck is a former Chairman and Trustee of the Somerset & Dorset Railway Heritage Trust and has considerable knowledge and experience with the S&D, so this will be a meeting not to be missed.

The meeting will commence at 2pm in the Mizens Railway’s Clubhouse.

Attendance is FREE OF CHARGE and all members of the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway Trust are invited to attend the event. As with all our meetings held at the Mizzens Railway our Sales Stand will be available to supply the latest exclusive L&B products from Woody Bay.
