Cornwall’s Daffodil Trains


The link between the railways and the daffodil industry in Cornwall is being celebrated in Falmouth this month.

A month-long exhibition running from 2nd-31st March at The Municipal Buildings, The Moor, will explore the relationship between the railways and daffodils growers, tracing it right back to the days of steam. The exhibition will include archive photographs of steam trains, classic railway posters and photos of Cornish bred daffodils.
