N.G.R.S. Library Open Days - 2016


The next N.G.R.S. library open day will be :      Sunday 7th February


(Please note that no public areas of the "Apedale Valley Light Railway" will be open.  The cafe and toilets in the adjacent mining heritage centre will be open.)


Other open days this year will be :


·          Saturday 12th March

·          Saturday 9th July

·          Saturday 15th October

·          Saturday 12th  November


As a result of member feedback and the wide range of ‘Narrow Gauge Railway Society’ visits that are organised during the Summer months we have pushed some of the Library open days into Spring and Autumn to give members a greater chance to enjoy member visits and other narrow gauge events over the summer months, whilst keeping Library services available at a more convenient time to members.


The library will be open from 11am - 4pm.

The library is located within the premises of the "Apedale Valley Light Railway", nr Newcastle-Under-Lyme , Staffordshire.  (Members should call at 'Silverdale' station in the first instance for escort across the site.)


Some open days will coincide with steaming dates on the "Apedale Valley Light Railway".



Should any members have a specific topic of enquiry, please let us know as it often enables us to better prepare research material in advance of a visit.


Hope to see you in the library soon !


Jim & Becky Hay
