A new exciting connection between three heritage sites in Worcestershire:

Norton Collection Museum in Bromsgrove, Transport Museum Wythall in Redditch, and Avoncroft Museum of Historic Buildings in Bromsgrove, are making it easier for visitors who travel by train, access their days out, events and places of interest.

The venture is supported by the Worcestershire Community Rail Partnership.

During a series of special weekends event list coming soon 

free return Heritage Bus rides, will run from Bromsgrove Train Station via the Norton Collection Museum in the heart of Bromsgrove and onto Avoncroft Museum in around twenty minutes.

The idea of bringing together three of the areas most cherished heritage museums and providing access to visitors from railway stations further up the line, that call at Bromsgrove, has been made possible by Bromsgrove Council Cultural Compact.

By opening up and connecting the North Worcestershire Heritage Trail, a newly named collection of places of interest in the region all three of the organisation’s involved hope to welcome visitors from out of area, and make it easy for them as possible.
