Fenland Light Railway

UPDATE on 2020 opening

It is with a heavy heart that we announce that we will now remain closed for the remainder of 2020

We have made the decision based on the safety of all our volunteers and visitors
– A majority of our volunteers fall into the vulnerable category
– The safety of our visitors is also hugely important to us
– The tier system puts us in a more restrictive level
– Although we are in a lower infection area we attract visitors from higher arears
– General infection levels are a lot higher than when we were opening previously
 
We understand that this will be a huge disappointment to many of you as it is us, but hopefully you will understand that we simply do not want to place anyone at any risk at all.
 
We will review the situation in the New Year and open as soon as we feel we can, we have some more improvements planned too that will help things.
 
We are grateful for the huge amount of support we have received during this difficult time as it means we will still be here to open again. This is all our volunteers, our visitors that came when we opened, people that have kindly donated and Ramsey Builders Merchants for their kind donation.
We hope that you all stay safe, have the best Christmas and New Year that you can with things as they are and look forward to when we can all enjoy the railway together again.
 
All at FLR

 

Although the FLR has been established for over 20 years we took the decision in 2013 to move  just 100 meters along Mereside Drove to our all new track and building to secure the future of the railway and provide a much better facility.

Our new site was officially opened by Lord De Ramsey in October 2014.

Our aim is to provide a local attraction that is accessible and affordable for all.

As well as Public Running Days at our site we provide an exciting venue for a Birthday Party and also take our portable track to support local events.

This year we will be running a number of themed events such as an Easter Egg Hunt, A Cream Tea Running and A Halloween Special, as well as our popular Santa Specials. So keep an eye on our website, Facebook and Twitter feed for all the latest info.

We are always open to new members, and welcome people along to come and see what we do !

The Big Lottery Fund were kind enough to give us a grant towards the cost of laying the track at our new site
