Coronavirus

Due to the current Corona virus outbreak, many attractions are delaying their 2020 season opening times and event organisers are cancelling or postponing their events.

While we will try to update the information on this site as much as possible, we cannot guarantee to have all the information we would like.

Therefore we urge you to check the latest information on the attraction or event's website or Facebook pages, and to contact them before travelling to avoid disappointment.

Outside, the ground around the box has been landscaped into an attractive garden where we have ground frames with which visitors can work semaphore signals. Demonstrations of 1970s and modern 'LED' colour light signals show present signalling methods. There is a garden railway and a 'pole route' - a sample of the posts and telegraph wires that were once common alongside railway lines.
