Rail Story at Ingrow

Our learning programme for Early Years to Key Stage 3 offers workshops and experiences in a historic setting with two museums – the Engine Shed and Carriage Works. Choose to explore history, literature, science, engineering, film production, art, numeracy or a murder mystery. Alternatively, contact us to discuss a bespoke workshop or a self-guided visit.

Choose a workshop summarised below or get more details from which also gives information about the Rail Story site. Next, decide if you want to add a rail journey to your day. You can eat packed lunches in the station garden/yard or on board a vintage carriage. Contact us with your preferred dates by emailing or calling 07825 632123.
