Registered Charity No. 514172
The support organisation of the Churnet Valley Railway project.


We support mainly through fund raising either by raffles or applying for grants, but we also try to raise funds through donations such as yours or legacy donations. Your donation will go towards providing funds to improve the railway's infrastructure, rolling stock and buildings and many other more minor projects such as fencing, signs etc.

Thank you again for your support
