Why Falling Sands is so important to the SVR.
The viaduct was completed in 1877, and years of water have gradually seeped into its seven arches, causing the brickwork to crack and erode, and the mortar joints to crumble. There’s already a 20 mph speed limit on trains crossing Falling Sands, and things can only get worse. Forced closure of the viaduct would cut off Kidderminster from the rest of the line. To lose this essential operational hub, housing our historic fleet of carriages, the Diesel Depot, mainline connection, and the point of departure for 80% of our visitors, would compromise the entire future of the SVR. It would be simply unthinkable.

How you can help to preserve this important part of the SVR's infrastructure.
As we continue to develop the plans for final submission to HLF, we will also be launching a major fundraising campaign to secure the further £250,000 we'll need in addition to HLF funding

Can you help us in our quest to restore Falling Sands viaduct?

We're through to the second stage of making our bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund for £1 million to restore the Falling Sands viaduct, a vital part of the Railway's infrastructure.

And that's where you come in. Because as well as the £1 million from HLF, we need to raise a further £250,000 for Falling Sands in donations, from individuals and trusts. By getting as much of this money in place, as soon as possible, we will show the will and support that's behind our bid to HLF for this essential SVR infrastructure project. 

We're planning a full fundraising campaign but you can give us a head start, by donating to Falling Sands right now.

Refer to web page for links to methods of donation.
