Abbey House Hotel
2019 AGM Weekend: Thurs 25th – Mon 29th April 2019 (update 26 Nov)
The 2019 AGM Weekend will be based at the Abbey House Hotel & Gardens which is located at Furness Abbey, Barrow-in-Furness.
Furness has a significant place in the history of rail and water transport starting with the transportation of iron ore and slate but then developing an important role in the early days of tourism in the southern Lake District. Following this theme of ‘Rail & Water Transport: Slate, Stone, Minerals & Tourism’ a full programme of trips, primarily by coach, but also including rail and water, is now available. The Booking Form will be included with the January Bulletin.

The main part of the Abbey House Hotel is a neo-Elizabethan H-plan mansion designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens and completed in 1914 as a guest house for Vickers Ltd and a flat for the Managing Director, Sir James McKechnie In its abstracted, military echo of the Tudor style, it prefigures the style of Lutyens’ Castle Drogo. Abbey House has been a Grade II* listed building since 1949.
Please Note that the dates for this AGM Weekend do not coincide with the May Bank Holiday weekend.
