Step out on a railway walk

THE great outdoors can be enjoyed to the full at a county beauty spot this weekend.

Visitors can join the Countryside Team at Wallington for a guided walk along the Wannie Line railway, which weaves through the estate.

The trek will take place on Saturday, between 10am and 2pm, and costs £4 for adults, £2 for children aged 10 and over and £10 for a family of four.

Booking is essential on 01670 773963.

On Sunday, the team will be putting on some wood-based activities, with practical demonstrations of woodland crafts, such as chainsaw carving, axe throwing and horse logging.

The event is being held from 11am to 3pm and normal admission charges apply.

For those who prefer Wallington’s indoor treasures, the Conservation Team will demonstrate how they care for textiles in free sessions in the Central Hall on Wednesday and Thursday, running from 1pm to 3.30pm.
