It is with great sadness that we report the death of John Keylock. John was a driving force in the establishment of the WHHG and in its various projects, most notably in recent times with the restoration of Tryfan Junction. He was for many years secretary of the Group and possessed an enormous fund of knowledge about the railway. The funeral was held on Wednesday 2nd October 2013 in the village church at Childswickham, Broadway. The church was packed with over 200 people and standing room only. David Allan gave the eulogy,a warm appreciation of John’s life.
Scattering of John’s ashes:
John Keylock’s ashes are to be scattered on the water meadow below the site of Salem Halt on Saturday 5th April at 11.00am. The field is owned by Lewis Esposito who has kindly agreed to this arrangement.
Everyone connected with John is invited to this simple ceremony in memory of a great servant of the Welsh Highland Railway.
