Statfold Barn Farm, located just outside Tamworth in Staffordshire, is home to locomotives and rolling stock of five different gauges that can run on different parts of the railway. The field railway is dual gauge (2’0” & 2’6”) and is laid out to allow a continuous out and back run of over three miles. The workshops here are one of the few places in Britain today where skilled staff, capable of building new steam locomotives, may be found. Three have been built since 2005 to traditional Hunslet Engine Company and Kerr Stuart designs.
It is also a working farm and the home of Statfold Seed Oils, an innovative and major processor and supplier of natural and refined seed oils such as flax, hemp and borage for use in a wide range of nutritional and personal care products.
The driving force behind the whole enterprise is Graham Lee, supported by his wife Carol, family members, professional engineers and support staff.
