I am going to Stapleford Park Minature Railway tomorrow. This is the first public open day this year. Stapleford Park is a Grade 1 listed country house near Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire. The park and house became a major tourist attraction through the 1960s and 70’s. The park though closed in 1982 and was sold to become an exclusive country hotel. The railway and parkland however is still owned by the Gretton family and opens for charity in the summer a few times a year. I will put some recordings up from this event.
