Yorkshire's Magnificent Journey


The Yorkshire’s Magnificent Journey project has commenced thanks to a £4.4m grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund. The £10m 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 a majority of the funds to deliver the project. However, we still have a final push for the last £300,000 to be able to complete the project.
