The categories are tiered with the broadest first. Click on the plus sign till you find the specific categories that best suit your group.

History

  1. THE HUDDERSFIELD RAILWAY CIRCLE was founded in 1947 by six enthusiasts meeting regularly in each other’s homes. Almost 70 years later, the Circle still meets once a fortnight, currently in Huddersfield Town Hall. Meetings are held on alternate Wednesdays at 19.45 when talks and film shows are presented either by members or invited guests. These evenings cover a wide range of transport subjects. During the summer months a programme of outdoor meetings and visits is also arranged.
