NORTH WEST MECCANO GUILD


Clicking on many of the pictures enlarges them and provides extra information. The models are usually attributed to the builder.

The Guild is always interested in preventing good Meccano going to waste. If you have any Meccano to re-cycle, please contact the Secretary.

The North West Meccano Guild (NWMG) had its beginnings in 1973 when a half dozen youthful enthusiasts, centred roughly around Leyland in Lancashire, met in somebody’s front room  to try to form a group for the exchange of  ideas and help.

This group soon grew and became the North West Meccano Guild with  around forty members and now, forty odd years later, the Guild is still in existence and  meets regularly to share ideas and enthusiasm, albeit the average age of the membership has risen somewhat!


The Guild holds two meetings in Leyland each year,in March and October (Annual General Meeting), and in addition  the Guild exhibits a number of times during the year at model railway shows, traction engine rallies, museums, charitable events etc.

Membership of the Guild is open to all those with an  interest in Meccano and model building and a warm welcome is extended to all who have not outgrown their youthful interest in the mechanical world.
