Sunday Walk – Where Trains Would Run

Was Congleton originally destined to be the major railway junction Crewe become? Between 1825 and 1853 24 separate railway lines were propositioned which would have run through the town. This walk will look at the impact these might have had on Congleton if they had been built.

Meet at Congleton Museum at 2pm. Pay by either cash or card upon arrival, no need to book in advance. Each attendee will receive a physical booklet which will be referred to during the walk.

Following the walk, a cream tea will be provided back at the museum, upstairs in the Sue Dorman Room. Scones and jams are sourced locally. Please let us know at least 48 hours in advance if you have any dietary requirements or allergies.

Adults £10, Friends of Congleton Museum £7, Children FREE.

Please let us know any access enquiries in advance, as walks can be slightly tailored. Dogs are permitted on the walk around the town, but not inside the museum at any time. Guide dogs are welcomed.
