Thankyou for visiting Saltburn Miniature Railway Association's official website.Website published on the 10th March 2004, updated on the 25th April 2016. The Brooklands Miniature Railway originally opened in 1965 as a 9.5 inch gauge line which ran in an end to end formation on the west end of the lake at the pleasure park.

Greenhead Park is a great place to visit, especially now it has been restored to its former glory. A second play area between the lake and the war memorial was originally intended to be temporary until the new playground was ready.
The paddling pool has provided summer fun for children since the 1930’s and is still a big attraction on sunny days. Please note that children using the paddling pool must be under adult supervision at all times. Run by volunteers from the Huddersfield Society of Model Engineers, the current miniature railway opened in Greenhead Park in August 2000. A variety of children’s rides, and sometimes a bouncy castle, are operated by the Hamer family near the railway and playground at weekends and daily during the school summer holidays (weather permitting). As soon as the lake was filled, a pair of mallard ducks arrived and a brood of ducklings soon followed! The restored bandstand is a great venue for music of all kinds including brass bands, jazz bands and choirs.
A series of 10 information boards tells visitors about the history of the Park and its main features. The conservatory is open to visitors when The Park cafe is open (see below) and is also used for exhibitions and special events. Visitors to Greenhead Park have a choice of two excellent eateries both with disabled access and toilets.
The long established Cafe in the Park, in the newly refurbished Refreshment Rooms building by the tennis courts, is open from 10am to 3pm in winter and 10am to 4pm in summer for hot and cold food and drinks, ice creams and lollies. In August 2011, a new establishment, The Park, opened for business in newly built premises behind the Conservatory. The restored Refreshment Rooms building offers a bookable inside space for community events and activities, and the room can also be booked for private functions.
A recent addition to the park facilities is the attractive modern pavilion by the bowling greens. Thanks to support from the Kirklees Environment Grant Scheme, the pavilion is topped by an attractive and environmentally-friendly sedum roof which we hope will also encourage others to consider installing this form of roofing. As well as the facilities available to customers of the two cafes, there are public toilets situated at the opposite end of the Refreshment Rooms building to the Cafe in the Park.


For more information about Greenhead Park Bowling Club, contact Geoff on 07445 994791 or Richard on 07813 738162. Completed in autumn 2013 is another sports facility – for those who like bowling with a French twist.
A new permanent orienteering course, installed in summer 2015, provides a fun way to navigate round the park.
Another new addition (August 2015) is a measured route for running, jogging or walking 1, 2 or 3 miles. Opened in summer 2013 is a Trim Trail for fitness fans of all ages who’d like a workout in the fresh air rather than the gym. The Greenhead Park skatepark is a great attraction for young people who want to hone their skateboarding skills.
Below is some information about what’s available and when, which we hope will be useful for vistors. Due to popular demand this was kept for five years, but drainage issues and deterioration of some of the equipment meant its time had run out.
The water is treated daily to keep it clean and leaves, debris and litter are also removed on a daily basis by Parks staff.
This family run business has been operating rides in Greenhead Park since 1946 and has now passed down to the third generation! Provided by Rising Sun Farm in Holmfirth, the carriage rides are on offer on the belvedere below the War Memorial at weekends, on bank holidays and daily during the school summer holidays, weather permitting. The lake is now home to wildlife of all kinds and surveys have identified a wide variety of species both in and on the water. A leaflet showing the locations of the boards is available at both Park cafes or you can go to our Park history page and download it.
Customers can choose to sit in the new building or the conservatory itself, and there’s outdoor seating available too. The Friends of Greenhead Park hold open meetings and our popular History Hour sessions there – see our events listings for details of these and other events in the Community Room. This provides a much-needed base for the Greenhead Park Bowling Club and the Friends of Greenhead Park. Our record of Changes in the Park includes some pictures of the construction of the pavilion and installation of the green roof. The Friends use the pavilion for our weekly drop-in session on Wednesday afternoons and for smaller meetings and events. At present use of the sports courts is free and usually on a first come, first served basis.  The courts are occasionally booked for coaching sessions. Greenhead Park’s 3-2-1 route caters for everyone including pushchair and wheelchair users, as it is all on pathways and there are no steps involved.


You’ll find a variety of equipment at four points around the outer edge of the main events field including stride jumps, ladder and abs bench.
The site welcomes BMX bikers and rollerbladers as well as skateboarders, and there’s free and open access during park opening hours. Click on the name of the railway below to view information including History, Opening Times and Locomotive Details. The line was later converted to 10 ? inch gauge and was also extended around the whole lake, making a circuit. Following pleas from parents not to remove a popular and well-used facility, it was agreed to install a new permanent play area in the same spot with improved drainage and landscaping.
Feeding the ducks is a popular activity but over-feeding with bread does bring problems, especially in the summer. The council and the Friends of Greenhead Park are keen to encourage more groups to perform on the bandstand and help keep the park’s musical heritage alive. Although no longer suitable for tropical plants, the recently restored conservatory is still an attractive addition to the park with its flowered-bordered pond and brightly coloured exotic plants. Huddersfield Petanque Club runs regular sessions at the terrain and newcomers are always welcome. Just download the map, which includes guidance on how to complete the course, and get orientated! For a while, trains were operated by Severn Lamb 'Western Comet', but after a recent change in ownership, the trains are now pulled by a Diddly themed train. Part of the new play area, aimed at younger children, is now open and it should be fully completed in time for the 2016 summer holidays.
Interested groups are welcome to contact us  and there’s also an information leaflet with details of how to put on an event on the bandstand. The light and airy space is heated by eco-friendly underfloor heating powered by a ground-source heat pump. Better alternatives recommended by the Canal and River Trust include corn, oats, bird seed and even defrosted peas. As well as the usual selection of hot and cold drinks, The Park now offers a range of delicious iced drinks.
