Alan will tell the story of how the last major part of the GWR was built at the turn of the 20th Century, and how it developed during its 100 year history to become the main route to London for most local people.

Alan said: “There were many changes down the years, with the seven original stations closing in the 1960s, and a new one opening in the 1970s. Most of the buildings associated with the line have changed their function – none more so than a former station that’s now a church.”

The event starts at 7.30pm and entrance is £2.50. Tickets can be booked in advance at any South Gloucestershire Library or call 01454 868006.
