Temporary Closure Notice

24 March 2020 


We are now closed for the next 3 weeks.

We apologise for any upset this may cause, however this decision wasn’t taken lightly and was made with all our Visitors, Volunteers and Staff health and protection in mind.

We will be reviewing the situation on a day-to-day basis following government guidelines, and will update this page and our website accordingly.

Events Cancelled:

Saturday 28th – Sunday 29th March – Spring Steam Gala

Sunday 5th April – Steam Sundays

Friday 10th – Monday 13th Easter Weekend


We all have a role to play and therefore we are reminding everyone of the current precautionary measures to help to reduce the risk provided by Public Health England and the NHS which are as follows: –


  • wash your hands with soap and water more regularly than normal – do this for at least 20 seconds
  • always wash your hands when you get home or into work
  • use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • put used tissues in the bin straight away and wash your hands afterwards
  • try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell
  • If you have developed a new cough or have a consistent high temperature, self-isolate at home for 7 days


  • do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean
