The Mountsorrel and Rothley Community Heritage Centre are hoping, with your help, to extend the Narrow Gauge Workship. This will permit us to relocate our two narrow gauge diesel locomotives to our restoration and maintenance hub, where they can be more effectively looked after. Better facilities, we hope, will also allow us to attract visiting narrow gauge working steam locomotives and will offer the possibility in the near future of short passenger rides around the quarry bottom garden area.
To be able to achieve this we need to add a 28 square metres extension, which if successful, would underpin our ability to be one of the few places where you can see both narrow and standard gauge railways operating alongside each other.
The cost of this extension will be £14,000 and, as always, our volunteers will undertake as much of the work as possible to keep costs down. We need your donation to help raise the money needed to build the extension! A project supporter has very kindly offered to match all donations received up to a value of £7000! Therefore, we are asking you to help us raise the remaining £7000 (which, with the matched funding, will double to the £14,000 required).
Thank you for your support!
