The Churnet Valley Railway is delighted to announce it will be operating services again from the 1st August 2020, in line with Government guidance.
The Churnet Valley Railway's Board of Directors are keeping abreast of the fast-changing rules of lockdown, social distancing obligations and the ever-increasing social views with regards to the on-going pandemic.
The Churnet Valley Railway (CVR) is celebrating after securing over £1.4m to bring this hugely popular visitor attraction into Leek.
Despite the Churnet Valley Railway currently being shut due to the global pandemic, we find it necessary to remind members of the public that trespassing on the railways within the area is not permitted.
Walkers, we need you. We have a couple of projects that need finalising or fine-tuning and local people who have time and safe access to the Churnet Valley might be able to help us. In particular, we have some walking routes that need additional information and recent photos.

The fish pass at the Grade II Crumpwood weir is now in action, opening up 7km river for Atlantic salmon, brown trout and more. Helping fish migrate up and down the river means they can find the best habitat to feed, shelter, spawn and grow.
