Bredgar and Wormshill Light Railway (BWLR)

At Bredgar and Wormshill Light Railway they have restored many long since abandoned industrial vehicles and machines to their former glory, some are better than original and now benefit from a new lease of life. As the railway developed, complementary attractions have been added: traction engines, a steam roller, vintage cars, miniature locos and a model railway. All have historical significance and a unique appeal.

Narrow gauge (2 foot) railway set in parkland with plenty of room to picnic and relax outdoors.  Trains run frequently throughout our open days and once you have entered the BWLR world all rides and activities are free.  A museum allows you to get up close to locomotives, tractors, cars and other exhibits.  A model railway usually runs in the museum which is a great attraction to children of all ages. There is also a tearoom providing a range of refreshment to enjoy and a treat or two.

A relaxing great day out for everyone.
