Many needed a good prune, shame I forgot to get some photos when they had been finished, but then we were all busy working!!! For John’s workshops see

Information for 2015 ‘Winter Image’ show

GOOD NEWS – The bridge is open as works have been cancelled. So just ignore whats below………..see you all at the show 

Railway bridge closure, November – April 2015

This information is for anyone attending the ‘Winter Image’ show on the 22nd Feb 2015.

I wasn’t going to post this just yet, but a number of people are already arranging their accommodation within the Swindon area and they may find this helpful.

It affects anyone attending the show venue, from the town side of Grange Drive. The railway bridge on the B4006 at Greenbridge, has been closed and will remain so until April 2015 while they renew and raise the bridge for the electrification of the main London railway system. There is a diversion signed, but it takes you back towards the town centre. See Map

The railway bridge on Ermin Street, which is off the A419 Swindon bypass, A420 Oxford Road junction is no problem and may be your best route to the show. It is controlled by traffic lights which keeps the traffic moving as it is busy at peak times. Luckily the show is on a Sunday as traffic is lighter.
