Winchcombe Railway Museum & Gardens - This interactive museum, operated by a voluntarily-run Trust possesses one of the largest displays of railway lineside notices in Britain.

The museum closed at the end of its 2013 season and will not re-open until 2015.

The Trustees are undertaking a number of refurbishment projects and have taken the decision to remain closed in 2014 so that these can be undertaken.

One of the many projects is the repair and re-location of the signal box. This was damaged by fire a few years ago and is now in a sorry state. It needs to be disassembled, some of the timbers replaced, a new concrete base constructed and the entire building re-painted and re-equipped. Some of the metal post signals and some of the display buildings also need to be refurnished.

It would be unsafe for the public to be in the museum garden while the works are being carried out. For this reason the museum will not be open to the general public in 2014 in the way that it has for the past 46 years.
