History and Heritage

Hereford Society of Model Engineers

Hereford Society of Model Engineers has tracks for popular gauges of model locomotives are catered for with both a elevated and a ground level track. It also has a 20 x 30 metre model boating pond and a newly extended garden railway.

Situated adjacent to the Waterworks Museum, a visit to Broomy Hill on one of our “Public Running Days”, makes for an enjoyable day for all the family. There is plenty of space for parking (it’s free too) and pleasant surroundings to enjoy a picnic.

On public running days access to the site and parking is FREE.

New and prospective members are made very welcome. Just turn up to a meeting or event and introduce yourself to a friendly face.

The most prominent feature when you arrive is the station and ticket office, which sells tickets for both tracks. Next to Broomy Hill Junction station is a picnic area, where you can watch the trains go by, whilst lunching.

To the left of the station is the elevated track, with it’s own, smaller, station, Compton High Level. To find this station, follow the fence towards the hedge (left facing the station). The entrance is in the far corner.

The elevated level track runs inside the low level track – be careful when you cross.

The site also has a clubhouse, which offers (under cover):

  • Refreshments and seating
  • An archive, museum and photo display
  • A children’s hands on railway

Beyond the Clubhouse is the Garden Railway. Enjoy your visit but please take care and supervise your children at all times.
