Local Area Groups

North Staffs Area Group

The North Staffs Group was formed in 1968 to provide a point of contact for all Ffestiniog Railway Society members living in the area bounded by Crewe in the North, Burton-on-Trent in the East, The A5 in the South and Mid Wales in the West. Today the Group raises money, mainly at our monthly Meetings in Newcastle-under-Lyme, for various projects on the Ffestiniog Railway and some members provide a lot of volunteer person days in the Traffic and the Parks & Gardens departments for the Ffestiniog Railway Co.



Dates to be confirmed.


Wolstanton Working Men’s Club, Chetwynd House, High Street, Wolstanton, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire. ST5 0HE.

Free Car Parking is available in the small Health Centre Car Park in Palmerston Street, opposite the side of the Club, or at the side of Palmerston Street itself. There are, apparently, two Car parks on the opposite side of the High Street, but there might be a Pay & Display parking fee.
