Farmer Parrs helps the Railway

The Railway has been helped dramatically with the help of Farmer Parrs near Fleetwood.

As part of our plan to reopen the railway to Fleetwood we need to resurface the platforms at Thornton and Burn Naze Station and with the help of Farmer Parrs this has begun.


Starting with Thornton Station we have taken delivery of 20 tons of road chippings. These have been crushed on to the down platform just beyond the shelter donated by Glasdons.


With this donation we have now nearly reached the stage of having the first section of the platform at Thornton ready for when services start running again.

In the near future we intend to carry out similar work at Burn Naze using the same method.

We would like to thank Farmer Parrs for their help.
