The Gunpowder Railway is a narrow gauge railway running roughly 1 km along the perimeter of the Royal Gunpowder Mills site.
During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, a narrow gauge railway was used to transport materials around the site. Since 2002, a dedicated team of volunteers have constructed a 2 foot 6 inch gauge railway, reflecting this history.
When is the Gunpowder Railway next running?
The Gunpowder Railway will be running on Sundays and selected Bank Holidays from Easter Sunday until the end of October.
