KWVR & Covid-19

The Keighley and Worth Valley Railway was forced to close its doors on the 20th March 2020 due to the Corona virus outbreak. Essentially, the railway has had to be mothballed until such time as the restrictions are lifted.

Without income, cash reserves are disappearing fast. The railway needs help to survive as the fantastic example of living history that it is today.

Help the KWVR During These Difficult Times

On 19 March, increased measures put into place by the government meant that we had to close the railway to all but essential work.  Our volunteers are at the heart of our railway and their health and well-being as well as that of our passengers and staff is our top priority.

We are unsure how long the railway will be closed, but as a registered charity the cancellation of our passenger trains, events and the closure of our commercial outlets will hit us hard. This appeal is the first in a possible series of fundraising initiatives we will be delivering. Please help support us through this difficult time by donating whatever you can.

Your donation will go towards keeping the railway afloat, and with your help we’ll be able to continue doing what we do best.
