In the heart of East Leicestershire, close to the River Eye, hidden behind Stapleford Park is one of Stapleford’s pride and joy - the Stapleford Miniature Railway. The one fifth miniature railway line runs through the park for 2 miles and includes an 80m underground tunnel. The 10¼ inch track meanders around the local golf course and follows the River Eye a short distance before returning its journey past the scenic Haven Lake, and back through the tunnel. A round trip of 14 minutes at around 8 miles per hour!
