7027 Thornbury Castle - 26-Sep-22

Following the Great Western Society’s board meeting over the weekend, the following statement has been issued regarding the purchase of Thornbury Castle by the GWS’ 4709 group:

"The Great Western Society (GWS) continues to be committed to buying the remaining components of 7027.

The board of GWS agrees to hold those parts in good condition for 6 months. During this time GWS will consider offers from properly funded groups for all or parts of 7027, to enable a rebuild of Thornbury Castle if viable.

The GWS have no plans to build a star."

Clive Hetherington

Chief Executive

In the interim, work on 4709 progresses well and a significant progress report is due shortly.
