Sleaford Museum Trust is to resume its series of informative talks on local history with the next one being on a railway theme.

On Tuesday, September 22, starting at 7.30pm, Jonathan Smith will give a talk on ‘Sleaford to Bourne – the railway Line the Great Northern Railway didn’t want to build”.

The line was opened in January 1872 and finally closed to all traffic in 1965. Jonathan will tell the whole fascinating story of this local line and its associated towns and villages.
