With Crich Tramway Village being closed to the public for only a week, our team have wasted no time getting stuck into a busy schedule of winter maintenance tasks across the site. Watch this space for further updates or why not get in touch to volunteer and become involved! See our website: https://www.tramway.co.uk/volunteering
The photograph above shows The Octogen at Wakebridge undergoing restoration and repaint to transform it into an interpretation space. This is part of a wider Heritage Lottery Funded project which will bring further enhancements to the Woodland Walk for the 2019 season.
Dorothea Restoration have commenced works restoring the Birmingham Tram Shelter at our Wakebridge tram stop (Photograph above left). Here paint samples are being taken to determine the original finish while the wired glass panels are carefully removed.
Work at Cabin Crossing (Photograph above right) includes groundworks being dug in our permanent way yard for installation of a new concrete hardstanding work area for pointwork and overhead component maintenance.
