Ingrow Bridge Appeal

Posted: 20 December 2019

The railway is now over 150 years old with much of the infrastructure dating back to the earliest days of the KWVR in the nineteenth century. As you would expect, some of the Railway’s structures are succumbing to the passage of time and one such is Bridge 11, the first bridge your train crosses after leaving Ingrow Tunnel. As a result, we really need your help to the finance its replacement.
