OPEN DAYS - CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

Come and visit the largest preserved Midland Railway signal box in the UK and one of the few preserved boxes that's open to the public and next to a busy main line railway.

Signalling demonstrations are run on the operating floor upstairs whenever asked for. Railway videos and a slideshow of the restoration are shown downstairs, with many signalling items on display, including single line 'tablet token' machines, and other railway-related exhibits.

In the garden visitors can operate working signals and a point; on display are old signs, lit oil lamps, a telegraph 'pole route' and a garden railway.

We suggest you allow at least 1 hour to view the garden and the signal box - no need to book - just come along. Light refreshments are available on open days.

Entrance is FREEand donations are always welcome.  The Trust, a charity, is supported entirely by donations.

Every visitor gets a traditional "Edmondson" card ticket as a souvenir of their visit!

Postcode for satnav users is AL1 3AJ. We are surrounded by parking at the station & in Ridgmont Road.

Access Statement: The site is fully accessible except for the long flight of eighteen steps to the upper floor of the signal box. For those unable to get upstairs a video of the upstairs workings can be shown downstairs. Accessible toilet and hand washing facilities available on request.

Organisations, schools and groups: Use the link 'Organised Visits' on the top left to find out more about organising visits for groups of up to 40 people outside our normal open days.
