Ah the calm before the storm. We have had a very busy weekend getting ready for our transformation into Le Visham. The large marquee, the kitchen tent and the green marquee have all been erected in the Station Yard. All the picnic benches from the paddock have been moved into the large marquee and the marquee ‘dressed’ with French posters and pine branches. The kitchen area has been set up, cleaned and prepared for action. The final signs have been made, the no waiting cones and the Meschersmitt brought out from store and readied for use. The bases for the key exhibits have been set out ready for final works later this week.
Our re-enactor colleagues have delivered some of the key items and prepared as much as they can here before the big event.
Weighbridge Teas and the Tea Hut have made their final checks, the orders for the food and drinks completed and a final stock take made to ensure they won’t run out of anything.
This work was only possible thanks to a large turnout of Wombles and the invaluable support of the Junior Volunteers and their supervisors.
All this was completed whilst still running the station this weekend, selling teas and coffees as normal and tidying up from last weekends Steam Gala.

Parking this week is very limited in the Yard due to the marquees and from Thursday this week there will be NO PUBLIC PARKING at Levisham. Limited parking is available on the hill above the station, which will be supervised by our National Park colleagues, but visitors are strongly recommended to travel to Le Visham by train.
