The day will also offer:

- an explanation of the drainage of the area from Vermuyden onwards

- an opportunity to examine old maps and artefacts

- a visit to the Engine Shed with a possible ride on 'Little Pete', a reconditioned Peatland engine (depending on the availability of a qualified volunteer driver,followed by an afternoon tea at the site

The cost will be £15, to include an afternoon tea (at lunchtime) - with sandwiches, scones, cakes, scotch egg, or sausage roll etc. in the little cafe and tearoom, with adequate seating for all.
