Bringing back Rail to the Vale
The Vale of Berkeley Railway Charitable Trust is working to re-open the existing Sharpness Branch line to passengers. We aim to rebuild many of the key structures which once adorned this section of the historic joint GWR and LMS railway, formerly part of the Severn & Wye Railway. The result will be a new heritage railway attraction and educational facility, enhancing the local community.
Sponsor a Sleeper
Please support our Sponsor a Sleeper appeal. We need to replace hundreds of rotten wooden sleepers at Oldminster Sidings, and buy special sleepers for the points and ballast to lay under the track for drainage.
Sleepers for just one point cost around £6,000 and there are several to rebuild, so you can see the scale of our challenge!
