STAPLEFORD STEAM TRAIN OPEN WEEKEND
Stapleford Park attended the Stapleford Miniature Railway annual event over August bank holiday. Thousands of people enjoyed a rare opportunity to ride a miniature railway. Each year the public are invited to ride its small steam trains along the two-mile track to raise money for Loros hospice.
The event also included a vintage threshing display, radio control tanks, vintage vehicles and Saxon villagers. This year the event was held over a three day period to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the first event held in 2003. The event is run by the friends of Stapleford Miniature Railway and the train rides are usually held over two days on the August bank holiday weekend.
