History of the Churnet Valley Line

1849 to the present day...



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




The North Staffordshire Railway Company (1978) LTD, the supporting charity for the Churnet Valley Railway, is happy to announce that the 2019 Raffle Tickets have arrived and are now available to purchase onboard all CVR services and from ourselves as well.

This year target is to finish raising over £17,000 to replace the edging stones on Froghall Platform 1, as the current ones are starting to show their age. more
