Local Area Groups

Gloucestershire Area Group

The Gloucestershire Area Group has existed for many decades and is an enthusiastic group dedicated to the Ffestiniog Railway and supporting it back in the Glocs area.



22nd January 2016 – we will be welcoming a familiar face but from perhaps further afield than we were expecting! Phil Brown, formerly of the Ffestiniog Operating Department and more recently the Operations Manager at the Severn Valley Railway, has now returned home to North Wales. However, it is his brief stay on what we would think of as the broad gauge, the Severn Valley Railway, that will form the subject of his talk on this occasion.
11th March 2016
15th April 2016.


Parmoor House, 13 Lypiatt Terrace, Lypiatt Road, Cheltenham, GL50 2SX. Map link »

The venue is just up the road from Montpellier and the Gordon Lamp. The meetings start at 19.30, and refreshments will be available during the interval. Parking is in the street outside, but can get busy! Do not park on the house forecourt as this is private.
