Sundew & The Great Walk Commemoration

<<<< Go Back

Join us for a special event to mark the 40th anniversary of the massive drag line excavator, Sundew, which famously walked from Exton Park to Corby in the summer of 1974. See what we have planned for Sundews driving cab – a unique surviving piece from the masterpiece of engineering, and see how Sundew would have walked with our fantastically detailed scale model. Visitors can also take steam hauled brake van rides along the line, and watch the quarry machines and quarry train in action! Refreshments available in our Sundew Café, and at the barbecue in the shadow of Sundews driving cab.
