50th Anniversary

Just us over the late May Bank Holiday to commemorate 50 years of running trains, with celebrations at Bridgnorth, Eardington Halt and Hampton Loade!

Tickets available soon.

On May 23rd 1970, the newly-preserved Severn Valley Railway ran its first passenger service; departing Bridgnorth at 2pm, the steam train stopped at Eardington Halt before arriving at Hampton Loade, the line's then-current terminus. 50 years on, we look back at that remarkable day...

  • Miniature and model railways.
  • Vintage bus rides around Bridgnorth and to Eardington Halt.

  • Vintage vehicles.
  • Saturday evening Fish 'N' Chip special from Bridgnorth at 7pm.
