Provisional Programme

Friday – 

Arrive in time for dinner, 7.00 for 7.30pm (I will confirm checking in time at a later date)

Saturday – 

Daytime steam on the East Lancashire Railway from Rossendale to Bury; and private visit to and steaming at Bolton Steam Museum (Northern Mill Engine Society).Transfers by private coach. Various scenarios for lunch; Morrison’s café, purchase something at Morrisons and bring back to Museum to eat, or I am looking in to the nearby pie shop to provide some form of lunch and serve it at the museum. There is a small café seating area in the museum and tea/coffee will be available at a nominal cost.

Evening Gala Dinner in private room.

Sunday – 

Morning traditional auction and there will also be room for a few small stalls if people have goods to sell but I have always found it is best for these to be put in the auction as job lots.

Sunday lunch

Afternoon talks/discussions on steamboat associated topics and hopefully something for the ladies (anyone any ideas?).

Departure around 4.00pm


Use of leisure facilities at the hotel are included in the price.


The hotel has said that they will provide reduced rate for anyone wishing to add extra nights either side of the weekend but I have yet to confirm those rates.
