Building for the Future

We did it! Thank you for your support . . .

Help secure our unique heritage for future generations.

We’ve now raised £2.5 million! Thank you to everyone who has supported us along the way. We are truly humbled. Our Bridgnorth dream is set to become reality!

However continual investment in the Railway is required to enable the SVR to develop as a site of national importance whilst retaining its position as a place of great local affection. It is anticipated that the additional necessary funding will come from profits generated by the annual running of the Railway, grant receipt from organisations such as the Severn Valley Railway Charitable Trust and share purchases from shareholders.

Typical examples of the investment challenges for the SVR are:

  • Restoration of a steam locomotive for a ten-year period of service = £600,000
  • Relaying half mile of track, sleepers and replacing ballast = £120,000
  • Replacing stonework/re-mortar one arch of a viaduct = £50,000
  • Restoring a GWR kitchen car = £80,000

We're still taking applications for shares, and you will receive a number of different benefits for doing so.

If you'd still like to donate to the Bridgnorth project, you can do so through our Charitable Trust, and if you are a taxpayer, we may be able to apply for a further 25% Gift Aid, on your behalf, at no extra cost to you, making this a very efficient way of giving to the project.
