Bank holiday at the Rural Life Centre
19th April 2010
... Comments

With the first May bank holiday weekend only two weeks away, if you’re looking for a day out why not try the Rural Life Centre.


On the Saturday the Old Kiln Light Railway, which is based at the museum, hosts model railway layouts of every gauge and type – the smallest fitting inside a coconut shell and the largest being around 35 feet long!  Railway preservation groups will be on hand to chat to visitors about their work, model makers will demonstrate their skills and there will be stalls selling a variety of modelling goods, including locos and rolling stock, books and tools.


And if trains are not your thing, the Sunday and Monday mark the return of the museum's popular Countryside & Woodland Weekend where young and old can try out traditional crafts such as woodturning and basket making.  There will also be plants to buy for your garden as well as a chance to see beekeeping in action when Farnham Beekeepers hold their Open Hive event.


The Model Railway Exhibition and the Countryside & Woodland Weekend take place on 1-3 May from 10am to 5pm at the Rural Life Centre, an accredited museum of village life, midway between Tilford and Frensham.
