Preserving our heritage for
future generations

The perfect gift for someone who loves the SVR

For £50, you can add your name or that of a friend or relative to the Railway's first ever donation wall at The Engine House Visitor Centre, Highley. It would make a unique birthday present, or a fitting gift in memory of a loved one who had a passion for the SVR.

We're creating this exciting installation as part of our appeal to save the viaduct at Falling Sands. It will act as testimony to all those individuals who've helped us save the viaduct.

Remember, every single passenger who travels to or from Kidderminster passes over the viaduct, and unless we act now, the SVR's operational viability will be threatened.

Yes I'd like to add a name to the SVR's donation wall

The donation wall is part of our appeal to raise £275,000 before the end of 2018 – which in turn will help unlock a further £1 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund – to carry out the necessary work on the viaduct.

If we exceed our target for this appeal, the additional funds will be invested in other SVR infrastructure projects

Thanks to National Lottery players, we've already been awarded a grant of £71,800 to refine and develop our bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund for a full grant of £1 million. We will submit our bid in October 2018, and receive HLF's final decision early in 2019. A key factor in winning HLF's support is our ability to independently raise £275,000 towards the costs of restoring Falling Sands Viaduct.
