We plan to meet at about 1pm (the works should be open from about 11am - 5pm).
We can use their meeting room for drinking tea, chatting about steamboats & eating packed lunches etc.
Tea/coffee etc will be available, but not snacks or meals.
The Robey Trust is a registered charity & actively restoring a collection of various machinery, mostly built by Robey.
Several stationary engines should be running on compressed air & a traction engine or steam roller should be in steam.
There is not a strict limit on numbers, but please let us know if you plan to attend so we have a rough idea.
No entry fee, but please be prepared to make a small donation towards the cost of coal/tea, etc..
Probably an ideal venue if anyone wants to bring their latest steam plant or even a boat to discuss or show off?

The Webmaster apologises for spraying all the world with the email of this announcement - finger trouble!
