Notes / History A display featuring surviving remnants from the Surrey Iron Railway(early 20th century).

The invention of steam-powered locomotives signalled the end of the ancient horse-powered rail service. The Surrey Iron Railway finally closed in 1846, when the land was sold back to the owners of the adjoining properties.
