The Severn Valley Railway is working towards securing funding of £1m from the Heritage Lottery Fund to repair the Falling Sands Viaduct. The viaduct, which carries our passengers over the canal just outside Kidderminster, was finished in 1878 and is now in need of some TLC. As part of the project, we will also be sharing the story of the viaduct and those who built it, the history of the line between Kidderminster and Bewdley and offering some new activities. We would like to find out about what you might be interested in seeing and doing.

We would be grateful if you could spare a few minutes to give us your views and help shape this exciting project. Many thanks!
