USING THE MIDLAND RAILWAY STUDY CENTRE
Using the Study Centre is as simple as getting in touch with the Study Centre Coordinator - details below. In order to help you find material which will be of use to you, it may be necessary to have a brief discussion about what you are looking for.
Though anyone with an interest in the Midland Railway will find items to interest them, the nature of the Study Centre lends itself better to those with a specific subject they wish to find out more about. Even if a visit to the Study Centre turns out not to be the best way forward to deal with your question, we have other resources available to help. Please use the "What else we can do to help" button on any page.
As this year is going to be highly unusual due to the Decant of the Silk Mill there is no published list of opening dates for 2017. Instead, appointments may be made for any Wednesday (from 10:30) or Saturday (from 12:30) until the Decant commences — which will be around September. Contact the Study Centre Coordinator as far in advance of your proposed visit as possible.
We can accommodate up to two visitors on any of these dates. To make an appointment please contact the Study Centre Coordinator.
Please note that visits to The Midland Railway Study Centre are by appointment only. Limited space means that if you arrive without an appointment we will be unable to accommodate you.
