A chance to meet our neighbours socially
A Northern Area Inter Area Event, organised jointly by the. Peaks and Pennines along with the four surrounding areas
Eden Camp is a museum with a difference, it is historical, educational, exciting and appeals to all ages and sexes! There is something here for everyone.
It occupies a former Second World War prisoner-of-war camp of 33 huts. After the prisoners left, the camp was used for storage and then abandoned. Its grounds then became overgrown. As the museum was being set up, much clearing, as well as repair and renovation of the buildings, was required.
One of its buildings contains three human torpedoes and a “Sleeping Beauty” Motorised Submersible Canoe.The museum has fully restored a Super Sherman (M50) to its original working classic, amongst many other military vehicles which are now on display in the Heritage Hall – a new purpose built events & exhibition centre.
The museum also has a reproduction V1.
A number of members are extending their visit to the area by booking into The Premier Inn in Pickering, on the Sunday night ( cos its cheaper !) a run around The North Yorkshire Moors will be arranged, possibly taking in a visit to Farndale to see the Daffies (Walking up all or just part of the Dale) meeting for a meal at The Feversham Arms Inn in Church Houses.
It will be necessary for members to register to come on this run if they want to dine with us at the Ferersham Arms Inn , the booking facility will open shortly, members should book into The Premier Inn directly
The weekend will start at The Stockyard at 9:00 leaving at 9:30 on Sunday, taking on a scenic route across to Pickering, with a Coffee Stop at Squires, The Bikers Cafe.
