Whats On

After many years at the Community Centre, we have moved a few hundred yards down the road to Our Lady of Lourdes Parish Centre. This is the Catholic Church Hall next to the petrol station by the roundabout in the centre of Mickleover. The new venue gives us more space which is all in one large room and so we won’t have displays hidden in classrooms where operators felt left out of the main event. There is a large kitchen and so we will still be able to provide refreshments and another benefit is a separate car park which is not shared with the library users. The only disadvantage is the cost which means a reluctant increase in our admission price to £4 but we hope all our visitors agree that it’s worth it.


Layouts & Demonstrations

On display for the first time will be the replacement for our popular group layout Henmore which is very much a ‘work in progress’. Other visiting layouts are expected.

Four Layouts so far (and counting)

  • The new Henmore Dale     0-16.5

  • The as yet unnamed Talylyn Layout    009

  • Keepers Hut    09

  • Port Wynnstay Quayside     0-16.5

The station is a way from the city centre where the buses to Mickelover leave from. Its probaly half a mile to walk or there should be a bus from the railway station to the bus station

  Buses to Mickleover go from Derby bus station and for most of the day go about every 8 minutes. The buses go round Mickleover in a loop and alternate buses do the loop in opposite directions. The directions are coded green and blue. Green is the most direct outbound from Derby. Ask for the Tesco stop
