Please help us complete our 1/2 mile southern extension to Boughton in 2020.
This involves 2 essential jobs:
1. Restore Bridge 11 (a 7-arch low brick viaduct with an iron cattle creep at one end)
2. Build a new station platform at Boughton
In 2018 we were very fortunate to be awarded over £60,000 in grant funding from Daventry District Council and LEADER towards completing the last two major obstacles before returning train services to Boughton. The Railway has to provide £18,000 in match-funding and so we are appealing for your help to raise that.
The conditions of the grant funding are that the project has to be completed by May 2020, so time is of the essence!
Please support us today and help this long-held dream become a reality really soon.
The Northampton & Lamport Railway (NLR) is a steam and heritage
diesel tourist railway in the heart of the Northamptonshire countryside.
Located just 5 miles north of Northampton, we currently have
approximately 1½ miles of running track along the old Northampton to
Market Harborough line. This route is now the Brampton Valley Way (a
14-mile linear park) so you can not only ride one of our trains along
the former line, but also walk along and watch the steam and diesel
engines in action.
First established in 1984, we are run purely by volunteers and have been operating train services since 1995. We are currently working to complete our ½ mile southern extension to Boughton, before then pushing north a further 1½ miles to Spratton.
