Hi railwaygun

We don't charge an admission fee but ask each individual to make a suggested donation of £10 to help cover the running costs of the museum and railway.

 :hellosign: njee20 Itís an amazing place there is everything you can think of connected with railways from buttons ,uniforms ,track diagrams ,time tables railway furniture ,models in several scales  The old Henley on Thames Wooden Booking Office a small real station ,a signal box ,a pair of ploughing engines ,and various parts of old stations around the grounds so much more that I canít remember it was a long time ago when I was lucky enough to visit with my late mate Cyril. The little tank engine really struggles up the hill with two wagons loaded with people  when it rains it has to be pulled up by a bulldozer .The late Bill Mc Alpine was thinking of running Flying Scotsman there but allthough a clever man he didnít think of the incline out of the valley.

I have written to Farley Hill, asking for 2019 dates.

Iím certain we will have room for Rabbitís friends and relations!

The N Gauge Forum has a group of 20+ who would like to visit Farley Hill.

Please let me know when you have agreed  the 2019 visiting dates so that we can suggest a suitable date for our members.

Post by: Railwaygun on October 25, 2018, 12:25:58 AM
Fawley Hill have replied to me:

Thank you for your enquiry regarding a visit to the late Sir William McAlpineís Fawley Hill Railway and Museum near Henley-on-Thames.
 
We are now able to advise dates for club group bookings (see attached flyer).
 
Fawley VIP Days are run by the independent Fawley Museum Society and admission is by pre-booked invitations only as the museum has a daily limit of 350 people.
 
Please can you advise your estimated group size and your 1st and 2nd choice of dates as soon as possible. We are experiencing heavy demand for invitations particularly following the screening on TV of ĎThe Great Model Railway Challengeí that was filmed at Fawley, so are expecting the dates to fill up rapidly.
 
There is no admission fee for our invitation running days but we would ask your group to provide a suggested minimum donation of £10 per person.

(http://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/gallery/70/941-251018002014-70450886.jpeg)

i have created a poll, and ask people to vote ASAP for 2 dates.

I will ask for the 2 most popular days and reserve 20 (or as needed) places.

I'm open to suggestions about an alternative approach!

Somehow in the mayhem that is currently our life (I won't bore you with the details), I missed this thread.

I would love to add my name to the list please (if not too late), I'm in North Oxfordshire. My father and mother went last year, I think, shortly before McAlpine passed away. My father had dealings with him through Wolverton Works.

Hi all,

I must admit I found being at Fawley Hill very depressing....

All that stuff just sitting around waiting for someone to take on it's restoration - a great shame.

Just hope that a good outcome is found for both the place and the stock, fixtures and fittings and that one mans dream can be fulfilled in some way.

Thanks

To save a three hour+ trip down from north of Boston Iíll be setting out on the Friday and staying closer, probably near Brackley.  If anyone needs a lift along my route from there and back on the Saturday, let me know. (Iím happy to make slight detours off the A43, M40)

Looks like a good lunch/tea venue Nick.

Thought Iíd overnight Friday near Henley, but........  itís the Henley Festival weekend! :doh: Cue the doubling or tripling of accommodation costs. :'( Another rethink needed. :hmmm:

Thanks for the kind offer, but never a serious option, and Iíve just checked prices and flights :(

£231 return is current cheapest with a flight time of over 3 hours! Thatís due to a stopover for flight transfer in Amsterdam! :o

Think Iíll drive and stop over with family half way - unless theyíre all on holiday, gone to the GP, or gone boating on the Thames, of course. :D

That would make a long tiring day for me. Health issues can tend to make three hour drives a bit of an issue for me in the following days.

Re signing up, by mentioning here youíd like be included will mean Railwaygun will probably have added you to the list, but drop him a PM to be sure.

I've seen reference to a sign up sheet, but can't find said sheet, I'd be interested to come along.

IIRC the initial instruction when this was first mooted was to PM Nick ( @Railwaygun (https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?action=profile;u=941) ) but don't know if still stands.

From memory Henley in the season of boats and boaters is bursting with visitors, booked solid for accommodation, and eateries and drinkeries are usually packed. Iíd recommend somewhere north of Fawley to avoid the congestion.

I have contacted  Fawley to ask whether we can pay cash on the day - my preferred option.(£10 per head is suggested)

I have also asked re facilities ( loos, coffee ). The site may Be difficult for anyone with a disability.

Lunch at the pub is optional and we can all meet at Fawley at 2pm I hope.

Post by: Railwaygun on May 24, 2019, 09:15:35 AM
reply from Fawley

Hi Nicholas,

Thank you for your update on your group's numbers.

The attached flyer will hopefully provide the answers to most of your questions. Note that the station still has it's original loos (including a large slate wall-type urinal) although there are others in the museum itself.

We prefer donations to be paid in advance with a single payment per group as we don't like having to ask our gate supervisors to handle large sums of cash.

The museum is a private collection so unfortunately we are not able to register it as a charity.


Regards

Mark & Helen

The N Gauge Forum has a group of 26 , and we are planning to arrive at 2pm, by car ( not a charabanc).
 
Can we make donations on the day? ( £10 suggested ).
 
Are you a charity. Ie can you reclaim the tax? (Always worth looking into.)
 
What time do you close? Any visitor facilities ( loos, coffee/ tea etc).?
 
We are all looking forward to the trip ( and the forthcoming Series 2 )
 
Best wishes
 
Nicholas Robinson


suggested arrival is 130.

how do people want to handle prepayment?

1) could we contribute to NGF and NGF then pays Fawley?

2) I could prepay, and then you send me the ££ (paypal preferred) or bank transfer

3) any other suggestions??

In light of their 'leaflet', should we adjust our previous timings?

Small detail noted by my brother about the lunch venue - itís not open until 12:00.🙁

Quote
Opening Hours

Tues to Sat 12.00 to 3.00 Food served 12.00 to 2.15

I suggest we meet there around 11:45 to allow for delays driving on a busy Saturday so we are all ready to storm the dining room as it opens.

With a crowd of us eating it possibly means we would be arriving a little later than 1:15 at Fawley.

I canít avoid High Wycombe as thatís where I live .
The only thing to be carefull of is Handy Cross roundabout which is the junction of the M40 and the A 404 you need to WATCH WHAT LANE you get in ,traffic does some times get a bit hectic but it should be OK  on Saturday as there wonít be many people on their way to work ,itís mainly a problem in the morning and evenings on a weekday .
Looking forward to meeting you all .
Make sure you print out the two forms that Railwaygun put on his post ,NO FORMS MEANS NO ENTRY .
Dont forget your Forum badges with your names on so we know whoís who .
Mind you I think by now everyone knows me .

Several examples were rebuilt with cut-down cabs for working on the Burry Port & Gwendraeth Valley Line, as there were several low bridges on the line that precluded the use of normal height locomotives.

The modified examples were nos. 03119, 03120, 03141, 03142, 03144, 03145, 03151, 03152 and late addition 03382

Their duties included shunting at Burry Port  and hauling full coal trains down from the valley's pits. For this latter duty they sometimes worked triple-headed

just a few samples of our day out !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A big thank you to Nick for organising a grand day out. :beers:

It was great to put faces/names to some avatars/usernames. And this was a neat change from the usual exhibition meetups. A wonderfully weird and eclectic collection of railwayana, and some really cool ceramic high voltage insulators!

When are we going back(!)?

Great day! Thanks to Nick R for organising.

I shall post a couple of my lowly pics tomorrow, though brother Jim and I are already pictured amongst those already posted. We had arrived early and didnít know we were on the same train ride as other members, some of whom we met later.

Fawley Hill is only open to invitees five times a year according to one of the guides/volunteers I spoke to, though its simple to get an invite - just go to the website and ask for entry, or email them. Numbers limited to 500 apparently, with todayís tally being somewhere around 400 I was told.

Well worth the visit, the exhibits being numerous and varied, even eclectic, with some superb models in many scales and gauges. And for wildlife lovers there are Red Kites circling overhead, Alpacas amongst the trees, Peacocks calling, ducks and geese fleeing from the ever-passing train load of humans, and occasional deer flitting from pasture to woodland.
