We opened the doors at Wingfield Station today (12th September 2021) as part of the national Heritage Open Days.
We ran tours of the Station on the hour from 11am to 3pm and welcomed over 70 pre-booked guests during the day. We were delighted to be joined by the South Wingfield Local History Group, who brought along their information boards as well as providing refreshments (including some very delicious cakes baked by Local History Group members - I was told many also belong to the local WI!).
Every September thousands of volunteers across England organise events to celebrate our fantastic history and culture. It's a fantastic chance to see hidden places and try out new experiences – all of which are FREE to explore.
As always, we are extremely grateful to DHBT volunteers who give their time to support the work of the Trust and help us make events such as this a success. Thanks also to tour guides Barry, Allan and Peter for delivering such informative tours.
This was a particularly special tour as it is very likely to be the last before the Contractor undertaking the urgent repairs works at Wingfield Station starts on site and DHBT hand over the building to them for a few weeks. More news to follow very soon regarding their appointment.
