Woodseaves Miniature Railway

The railway has been open to the public since 2004 and runs within the Woodseaves Garden Plants nursery, both owned by Jean & Bill Haywood.

The inspiration for a railway comes from Bill’s fascination with Pullmans as a youngster. The combination of a nursery and railway works well and from time to time we run special events which are beneficial to both.

The railway is kept running by a keen team of enthusuastic volunteers and is privately funded by Bill.

The nursery specialises in growing herbs, herbacious perennials, old roses. There are garden displays featuring willow creations of fences, tunnels & screens and of course we give friendly advice on how to grow them.

The railway is open Sunday afternoons from Easter to September. We reserve the right to close the railway at our discretion. Admission to the nursery and station is free with free car parking. In addition to our timetable we can take bookings for groups, parties, societies, children and special occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries. Teas & Cakes can be arranged for most bookings.
