The Railway Children (1970)

Picture reference rc011


The 'village' is really more of a hamlet now and it is called 'Wycoller' There are a few houses, a tearoom and a country park. As well as the ancient and interestingly distorted pack horse bridge there is the Ford above it where 'Bobbie' met the doctor crossing in his pony and trap and further upstream an even more ancient clapper bridge. Nearby are the ruins of Wycoller Hall and a beautifully restored barn which is now a heritage centre and Tourist Information office. (the 'Aisled Barn) There is a Local Authority website entry at:

this gives links to the Village, the Country Park and the Aisled Barn.
