Our newly created Sensory Discovery Box gives your group the opportunity to use their eyes, ears, fingers and noses to experience the Watercress Line. Your group is encouraged to engage with the objects through handling and discussion.
The sensory box includes:
samples of carriage seat fabric
small pieces of rail
nuts and bolts from the workshop
red and green flags
hats and fireman's gloves
plus lots more!
The Sensory Discovery Box can be be coupled with a ride behind on of our heritage locomotives as an Railway Experience Visit or we can come to your school for an outreach session.
