The Hawthorn Leslie 3837 Preservation society has just purchased 3837 from Mole Valley District Council where she has been standing on display for over 25 years behind Leatherhead Leisure Centre. We are now in the process of moving her to her new home where she will be fully overhauled into full working order.

Hidden History

Picture above taken 19th August 2009 – a sad sight !

The refurbishment of the Leisure Centre has given local residents views of a hidden gem. The history of the locomotive is documented on this website, however, does anyone know how the locomotive ended up in the grounds of the Leatherhead Leisure Centre ?
