The club was formed in 1974 to help raise funds for the proposed New Mills Swimming Pool.
After the pool had been built, the members, having enjoyed the experience of staging the fund raising exhibitions, decided to carry on as New Mills and District Railway Modellers. Meetings were held in one of the local pubs and the first independent exhibition was organised. This proved to be a success and we were on our way.
Many of those who were involved are still active members as we start organising what will be our
43rd Annual Exhibition to be held on
25th, 26th February 2017.
We are different to most clubs as we do not have club rooms or layouts — we've never seen the need!.
Our meetings are intended to be social gatherings with the minimum of business, the main aim being to stage the annual exhibition and enjoy our hobby.
New members are always welcome and you don't need to have a layout.
