Whilst our Helping Hands for Falling Sands appeal has now CLOSED for donations, and the wall is up at the Engine House in Highley, please take a look at our video to get a sense of the scale of the viaduct.


We will be holding several events at the viaduct, including a canal-side festival in summer 2021 when the project is complete. Keep an eye on our website and Instagram feed for more details about the events we're planning in 2020 and 2021.

A big thank you to this non-exhaustive list of individuals, without whom this project would not have been possible:

  • Chris Haynes

  • Gay Hill

  • Paul Taylor

  • Suzanne Wenczek

  • Hannah McSherry


And special thanks to Alan Corfield for the fantastic image used on our home page. 

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who donated towards our Helping Hands for Falling Sands Appeal which raised a fantastic £397,000 towards the cost of restoring the viaduct. 

We have now installed the stunning donation wall, showing 3,000 names, and acknowledging every person, organisation and business who donated. The wall is in place at The Engine House, Highley.

This important installation is a fitting testament to all those who have shown such determination to save Falling Sands Viaduct.


A huge THANK YOU to The National Lottery Heritage Fund, and all these trusts and foundations who have made the restoration of Falling Sands Viaduct possible.  


The Severn Valley Railway Charitable Trust is a registered charity and an independent, not-for-profit organisation. The funds we raise go to towards maintaining the Severn Valley Railway.  Ticket sales and profits from our shops, pubs and cafes isn't enough to cover the costs of large-scale heritage restoration projects like this, or education and community outreach programmes that help us to reach new audiences.
