3rd July

Summer evening visit to Mike Lambourne's garden railway at Lower Frankton. 

This unique railway is built on the wall of a 200 year old dry dock next to the locks where the Montgomery Canal meets the Llangollen Canal.  It is beautifully landscaped with slate and includes lots of Mike's own figures.  The lock is where  "Cressy", the narrow boat featured in "NARROW BOAT" by L.T.C. Rolt , was converted for leisure use.   

We suggest you share lifts as much as possible as parking is a bit tricky!  More information nearer the date.
