Have you ever wondered about the special place that Wylam holds on the world stage of railway development ? Well wonder no more as local industrial archaeologist Robert Forsythe guides us into the story of the Wylam Railway Pioneers.

The former 18th century waggon-way will be walked, former mine sites, the former Ironworks, the railway museum, the bridge that dates back to 1836 and the Georgian railway station are all on the list. Join us for an enjoyable and informative exploration of our local but yet global industrial history.

The walk begins at Wylam Library. Please bring stout footwear. In the case of very inclement weather we will remain at the library where Robert will talk us through the walk!
