WELCOME! This is the website of Karen, Keith (&Tay).

Our home is situated at Chappel And Wakes Colne Railway Station, a branch line which runs through the countryside of Essex and Suffolk, over the viaduct which dominates the landscape. This site is about our home, village and lives.  

Read about the history of the branch line, activities and amenities in the village (including The Swan Inn, Chappel Galleries and EARM - East Anglian Railway Museum) or check out our holidays to Paris and Peru.

Please sign our guest book and tell us what you think!
