For readers who missed the summer shafting in June, we are doing an autumn one! Visit Open House website for details. Entry to the Museum is free, but shafters are invited to make donations to help run the Brunel charity's community events.
In the interest of keeping up a good innuendo, I should point out that visitors now have the chance to see the Iron Duke. Its pistons were hammered in the local forge and the local vicar named the locomotive. For the historians, this is Nick the Vic who blessed the shaft at the Fancy Fair... in 2002."
Robert rocks!! The tour which a group of us went to in June is well worth every penny!
