Heritage track to be laid

The first stretch of demonstration railway track`s being laid today as part of a heritage project at Irchester Country Park.

It’ll show the route of the old railway that once transported iron ore from the former Wembley Pit quarry.

The £89,000 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund is enabling Northamptonshire County Council to create a new heritage trail, giving visitors to the park the chance to find out more about the geological and history of the site.
