Yorkshire's Magnificent Journey


Yorkshire’s Magnificent Journey project will start this spring thanks to a £4.4m grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund. The £9.7m project has also received £1.75 million from the Rural Payments Agency (RPA), as well as contributions from local organisations and private donors. With a combination of donations and grants, the railway has raised 90% of the funds to deliver the project. However, we still needs to raise an additional £1 million over the next five years to be able to complete the project.
