As part of the celebrations of the 100th anniversary of the Ripley Rattlers tram system, Crich Tramway Village will be loaning out Southampton 45 to Kimberley Town Centre.

The Ripley Rattlers ran from Nottingham to Ripley via Kimberly and Eastwood between 1913 and 1932. The trams got their name the Ripley Rattlers due to the bumpy route which was once named the worst and most dangerous in the Country.

The event will take place on Saturday, June 29.

Curator Laura Waters said: “Although we don’t have an original Ripley Tram, Southampton 45 is of a similar size and style of those that would have run though this area.”
