The sad end of Great Yeldham Carriage Works


As our lease at Great Yeldham comes to an end, we are dismantling everything ready to transport it all to our new workshop near Colchester.

The volunteers involved today were, David Ely, Dave Gandell, Richard Wadeson John Myhill and Charles Summers - all hard at work as well as getting covered in dust.

As soon as we are relocated and the workshop serviceable, the final assembly of Carriage No 5 will be commenced - to be followed by the rebuilding of Van No 23.

All being well we should have a date for an open day later this year when Members can visit us in our new home.

The end of one era - the beginning of yet another.
