Churnet Valley Railway is celebrating its 25th anniversary
Churnet Valley Railway, one of Staffordshire’s key heritage attractions, is celebrating its 25th anniversary. Perfect for couples who love history, the railway dates back to 1992 and the first passenger train was launched in 1996, travelling between Cheddleton and Leekbrook.
Gregory Wilson, the managing director, paid thanks to the volunteers: “We’ve reached this milestone due to the dedication and passion of our volunteers. We have almost 100 active volunteers, and some have been with us since the beginning. Devoting a quarter of a century to anything requires commitment. Our volunteers come rain or shine, and they are the main reason we are here today.”
