Much needed works to repair and restore the roof to our station canopy at Lhen Coan is now complete.WClucas Trustork has been ongoing since the spring to remove the time expired roof cladding, repair and/or replace rotten roof timbers, fully repaint the framework and fit brand new roof cladding to the structure.

The  canopy was completed in 1993 in time for the Year of Railways Celebrations and is an aesthetic replica of the railway’s original 1896 canopy which stood on the site until being demolished in the 1970s following the closure and scrapping of the original line.

The volunteers are grateful to the Elizabeth Clucas Trust and the Scheinberg Family for their generous support which has allowed this important project to be undertaken and completed to such a high standard.
