14th December 2013 : Father Christmas, one of his elves and a polar bear meet children at HCS
November 2013 : ramp-working party - purely by chance, just before the Royal visit
The steep ramp to platform 2 has been upgraded by the Friends. This scheme involved weed clearance and elimination, rubbish removal and levelling, followed by a terram membrane being fitted, then covered with a 2-3 inch layer of decorative stone. Some 12 tonnes of Cotswold Cream stone was funded and purchased via generous grants.
Four bags of the ten bags [ten tonnes] of Cotswold stone
Old railway posters displayed on the stairs down to the upline, platform 1.
All the locations on the old railway posters are in the northwest and Heaton Chapel station could be a convenient station to begin the journey.
