This weekend, to celebrate Heritage Open Days 2023 we will be diving into the history of Leeming Bar with our Looking Back at Leeming Bar exhibition. Last year, we completed an incredible project to restore Leeming Bar Station to its 1920s appearance and function, and throughout this project we learned a great deal about the interesting history of Leeming Bar village. For HOD 2023, we’d like to show off some of the information, photos and objects that we’ve acquired along the way with an exhibition at Leeming Bar Station on Saturday 16th & Sunday 17th September. The exhibition will be free to access, but usual costs apply to travelling on the trains.
