Avon Valley Railway

Description

Opened in 1869 by the Midland Railway as a through route between Birmingham and the South Coast our line was later linked to the iconic Somerset and Dorset Railway.  Closed under the Beeching Axe of the 1960’s the line was preserved by an enthusiastic group of volunteers.  Today, 40 years on, three miles of track has been re-laid, locomotives and carriages restored, and the sound of steam can once again be heard along the Avon Valley.

Visit our restored Victorian station, take a ride behind one of our steam or diesel locomotives and enjoy breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea in our station Buffet.
