Steam Locomotives at Kidderminster Steam Railway Station on the Severn Valley line

Severn Valley Sream Railway

Signposted in Kidderminster, Bewdley, and Bridgnorth the stations have parking facilities.

Following the closure of many railway stations and lines in 1963, the late Sir Gerald Nabarro (MP for the area) spearheaded a campaign to re-open the line between Kidderminster and Bridgnorth.

In 1967 the campaign showed success and the line was carrying passengers between Bridgnorth and Hampton Loade.

Hard work by volunteers resulted in further sections of the line being restored and opened once more and today 16 miles of track provide visitors with the opportunity to enjoy not only the beautiful scenery but the experience of travelling on one of Britain’s most successful restoration schemes.

In 2007 severe storms damaged 45 locations on the line, repair work was put in hand immediately and the repairs are now complete.

Servern Valley RailwayThe line wends its way through lovely country side with its views of the River Severn from Kidderminster (Worcestershire) through Bewdley (Worcestershire) to:-
