21st and 22nd October



Following the success of the two small exhibitions held in Chesterfield during 2022 a further event will take place on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd October 2023 at St Leonard's Mission Church, Valley Road, Spital, Chesterfield S40 0HA. Open from 10am to 4pm each day we will be showing some of our popular small layouts including Hogwarts Castle, Churchgate and Timbertracks. Admission is free but donations would be appreciated.



During the Summer of 2022 we held two small exhibitions, one in St Mary's Parish Church, Chesterfield (The 'Crooked Spire') and one in the historic Eyre Chapel, Newbold.


These featured Malcolm Wilkinson's wonderful Hogwart's (based on the Harry Potter books), James Harrison's bucolic Brockwell Southern Railway layout, our North American Timbertracks logging layout rescued from the scrap heap and Tom's Wharf (with the windmill)built to the unusual scale of 5.5mm to the foot.


Two other layouts also exhibited at the 'Crooked Spire' were the 7mm narrow gauge Cotehele Quay owned by Darrell Clarke based on the real place and the O gauge layout built by James Harrison and Scott Lee.
