Preserving our heritage for
future generations

Trusts & Foundations

The Severn Valley Railway relies heavily on the support of independent grant makers such as trusts and foundations to fund the restoration and development of the Severn Valley Railway.

Over our history, many of our visitor attractions that some 250,000 individuals enjoy each year, have only come about thanks to the generosity of trusts, foundations, and lottery funding.

We are indebted to supporters such as these and view them as equal partners in our quest to give families and enthusiasts a chance to take a trip down memory lane to the Golden Age of travel.

We have many heritage projects that we would like to fund within the areas of Worcestershire, Shropshire and the West Midlands, covering apprenticeships, education, restoration of heritage buildings and locomotives and rolling stock and much much more.
