Track Laying Reaches Nunckley Hill

The project reached another major milestone when on November 17th community volunteers laid track into the base of the old Nunckley Hill quarry and to within sight of the bridge at Wood Lane!

Almost all of the 1300m of track we have laid so far has been away from publicly accessible areas, so to come within sight of the bridge where the public can now see the great work that the community is doing to preserve our local heritage, has really given the volunteers working on the project a major boost.

In early December track laying should pass through the bridge itself and back into Mountsorrel!

The Youtube link below shows a ride up the line to Nunckley Hill. 

Track laying is very labour intensive and we need additional volunteers to help with this process if we are to reach the end of the line by early March next year. If you are reasonably able bodied and can spare the occasional Saturday morning, we would very much like to hear from you by email

We need your help!
