Welfare Hall Talk - History of Rowley Station

Wed 5th Aug :: 2pm & 3pm

The railway came to the quiet settlement of Rowley in 1834. The station which opened a decade later had a fascinating history despite serving a very small community, its history continuing after the station building was translocated to Beamish Museum where it can be enjoyed today. Join Rob Langham, local historian and Beamish Engager, for this illustrated talk which covers the history of Rowley station from 1834 to today.

Our Welfare Hall Talks take place on the first Wednesday of the month at 2pm and 3pm, lasting 30 minutes each.

Refreshments will be available in the welfare hall.

As with all day time events and festivals, the Welfare Hall Talks are included in your Beamish Unlimited Pass.
