Completed ProjectsWhether it's a small project to install a period feature, or a more large scale project that sees the reconstruction of a long lost building - the NSRC has taken on a number of challenges and succeeded in recreating a living museum that all of us can be proud. Discover just where donations have been spent, what was recreated and when, and you'll see anything is possible when we all work together.
Living Landscape PartnershipIn 2010 the Churnet Valley Living Landscape Partnership (CVLLP) was formed, bringing together local community groups to enhance and celebrate the heritage, the history and the landscape of Staffordshire's hidden valley. Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, the NSRC was able to complete a number of projects that brought redundant railway assets back to life.
Leek Brook Waiting RoomFollowing completion of the CVLLP that saw the signal box and platform restored at Leek Brook, it was decided that some form of covered accommodation was needed for visitors. For this a replica of the original wooden waiting room has been created with modifications for modern day use.
Froghall Platform 1In 2014 the NSRC launched an appeal to pay for the replacement of the platform coping stones, and complete the tarmacking of the full platform. With additional support from the CVR, and further grant support from the local Council, this project was completed in time for the re-opening of the 2021 season.
Over the years the North Staffordshire Railway Company (1978) Ltd. has completed a number of projects that enhance the culutral and heritage display found along the Churnet Valley Railway. Click on the list below to find out more.
