NCT’s #RuddyGoodDayOut | Great Central Railway Nottingham – CLOSED

Great Central Railway Nottingham Use stop: Rushcliffe Country Park – Green 10C (Sundays & Bank Holidays) or The Green – Navy 3, Green 10 (other days), with a short walk from The Green via Elms Park to the GCRN.

GCRN Commercial Director Phil Stanway says: “In view of the rapidly developing Coronavirus pandemic and constantly changing official advice, we believe it would be irresponsible to expose our staff & visitors to unnecessary risk. Therefore it is with huge regret that we have taken the decision to cease all public facing operations from 5pm tomorrow (18th March) until the 1st of May.
“This decision has been extremely hard to make and will be subject to constant review with the aim of being able to reopen in time for the early May Bank Holiday. This is not only to protect the public but also to protect our volunteers, many of whom are in the “at risk” groups as defined by Public Health England.”
