In the heart of Peterborough city centre in Cambridgeshire, bordering the River Nene and the Nene Valley Railway, is Railworld, a train museum and conservation project that’s the culmination of one man’s 25-year vision.
Inspired by the visionary wildlife havens created by Perkins Engines at their nearby site during the 1990s, Brian Pearce MBE – one of Railworld’s founding fathers and a passionate conservationist – has, aided by legions of volunteers, companies, groups and individuals, spent the past 25 years turning three acres of a derelict, former power station coal yard into a scenic wildlife habitat that’s home to over 200 species of flora and fauna. In addition, Brian and his industrious helpers have created a 6,000 sq ft environment centre, complete with giant solar powered rotating globe, an elliptical viewing platform, classrooms and a state-of-the-art energy management system.
