Ruthin Railway Community Book Celebration Event
Posted on 08 Dec 2022
Next week you will be able to see our latest community book for the first time – all about the history of Ruthin Railway that closed in 1962. Come along to this free event at The Old Courthouse between 3-4.30pm on Tuesday 13th December and discover fascinating tales of the railway as shared by local residents, including photographs, audio and film. Hear about the experiences of men returning from war to their families, love letters passed between local students through train carriage windows, who was recalled as a familiar sight collecting the morning paper for Mr Arthur Williams, and discover local clues as to the where the original route of the railway was meant to be and possible reasons why this changed, and much more.
You can book a place here on Eventbrite There will be a free buffet and the chance to chat about your memories with other residents. The event was run by Book of You CIC and funded and supported by Clocaenog Forest Wind Farm Fund, Big Lottery Heritage Fund, Ruthin and District Civic Association, Denbighshire County Council and Ruthin Town Council.
