In the early day of the Society we used to meet in the Basement of Ramsden Technical College which is now part of the Huddersfield University campus, and sail in the Reservoirs above Marsden. In 1937 the Highfields Site was aqquired.
By 1939 a Boating pond had Opened and the Society was in full swing.
A 440 foot Railway was built on the site which was at Ground Level but it later years was raised up on pillars
As well as the Railway track which takes Gauges 3" 5" and 7 1/4" the site also has a road system for RC Trucks
