The Friends of Romsey Signal Box is the group established to undertake the restoration and operation of Romsey signal box and Cowley Bridge Junction miniature frame, and look after the site at Romsey on behalf of the Romsey and District Buildings Preservation Trust (to which it is affiliated).
Membership of the Friends is open to anyone with an interest in the preservation of the box. All supporters are welcome, although clearly the project cannot flourish without the active involvement of as many members as possible, who can help with preservation and maintenance of the equipment and demonstrations of its use. The current annual subscription (running till the end of March of the year after joining) is £10.00 for an adult and £5.00 for a child (under 16 on date of applying). Members enjoy free access to the site on open days whether working or not.
Working volunteers are welcome, there are many tasks associated with maintaining the site and developing the facilities, as well as operating and demonstrating the equipment during the public open sessions. See more of what our volunteers get up to on our News page. Working parties are held in the mornings before open days and on other dates agreed within the membership. Volunteers working during the open days are invited to acquire uniform sweatshirts or polo shirts – a subsidy may be available towards the cost of these.
