The Bridge View Light Railway is an exciting, new, volunteer run, community project to build and operate a heritage themed miniature railway along the beautiful riverbank of the Sowe.

You can enjoy riding the railway on a regular open day, or at our special events – find out more on our website  www.bvlrail.org.uk or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/BVLRail

You could also come and join our volunteers. Please feel free to contact us, or visit on an open day and say ‘hi!’ to our friendly group.

The railway is located in the grounds of Russells Garden Centre, Baginton. CV8 3AG.

Lunt Fort Gatehouse

The Lunt Roman Fort makes an excellent and educational visit for families. You can explore the fort, stand on the ramparts (The sections next to the gateway), discover the exhibition in the Granary and imagine yourself training horses in the gyrus.  We hold events for families during the school holidays and occasionally Roman Army and Roman life re-enactments – see our website, www.luntromanfort.org for details. School and group visits can be made between February and early December each year, Wednesday to Friday. We are not open to the public during the weekends. All events are included within the entrance fee, unless otherwise stated.
