John Aldrick, treasurer and exhibition manager, said: “A few years back, we noticed the number of children was getting fewer and fewer, so we’ve made it free for them if accompanied by an adult. It’s been very encouraging to see the number of children now coming along.”

The society’s latest project, a recreation of the railway at Chapel-en-le-Frith, was among the layouts displayed.
