A talk by John Mayell on The Past, Present and Future of Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway.
John lives locally and has been a GWR member and volunteer for 12 years, working in four different functions each year for the benefit of this award winning heritage railway.
His talk and slide show describes the work of the men and women volunteers and illustrates the interesting facts and figures relating to the company’s history, now in the top 5 of UK Heritage railways. GWR has grown from a standing start with virtually nothing to a vibrant and popular tourist attraction in the Cotswolds. It has been voted No.1 outdoors for the past 2 years.
We are planning a visit to the GWR in October to complement this talk.
