Welcome to the Hollycombe Website


Hollycombe is pleased to acknowledge the following organisations who have been kind enough to support us in the preservation of the Hollycombe Working Steam Museum.

Hollycombe is a non profit making venture, operated and maintained largely by volunteers. There is a very great cost of maintenance and development of this wonderful collection. If you would like to sponsor Hollycombe in general or a specific area through a one off donation or regular support then we would be very grateful if you would contact us.

Heritage Lottery Fund: Grant of £998,500 towards the Interpretation, Education and Orientation Project. Grant of £65,200 towards the construction of a new storage and maintenance building.

Jewsons: Donation of paint for Haunted House and other projects.
