We take a break in January and will meet again on the third Thursday in February
2017 - speaker to be announced.

We aim to publicise details of our talks here, via Barrie Hughes’s WHR
Construction website and the various WHR/FR Yahoo groups.

The Group meets at the The Six Bells Pub, 9 High Street, Fulbourn, Cambridge CB21 5DH. We meet up any time after 6-6.30pm and an evening meal is available in the restaurant or bar, and prices are reasonable.

The meetings are usually held in the Function Rooms, accessed from the car park at the rear of the pub, and start around 8pm with a halfway break for coffee (1.20 per person). We finish at around 10pm. There is a charge of 2 per meeting (3 for non-members).

Fulbourn is easily accessible from the A14/M11 corridors and is served by Stagecoach bus Citi 1 (Note: Bus runs every 30 minutes until 23.45 to Cambridge City Centre). Car parking at the pub can be busy but there is space available on Church Lane, 3-5 minutes from the Six Bells.


Although the group has been very active in the past with volunteering projects
both in the locality and at the railway itself, we are no longer able to carry
out any projects. Please see our Group reports for details of our previous

EAG Commitee meetingIn the past we have held Group visits to such diverse transport locations as the Bure Valley Railway, Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway, Mike Schumann’s Norton Hill Light Railway, Audley End Miniature Railway, Cambridge Museum of Technology, East Anglian Transport Museum, and the Wells & Walsingham and Wells Harbour Railways (to name but a few!).
