Made in Preston, the website about Preston, Lancashire

Crich Tramway Village - National Tramway Museum

Visit in June 2008.


The museum is a collection of old mill type buildings in a hilly area of Derbyshire south of Matlock.

Interesting that the tram ride takes up a climb that is impressive for a tram. There is a wide selection of trams, quite a few from overseas. How many from Preston's huge English Electric tram factory.

As our visit was in 2008 it might have changed, need to revisit.
