Weʼre raising £2,000 to help fund the 1722 Waggonway Project - we recently found the remains of Scotland's 1st railway and need vital funds to secure its future!

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The community-run 1722 Waggonway Project recently discovered the remains of Scotland's first railway, a find of huge sugnificance as these are the earliest remains of any wooden waggonway (the forerunners of railways) discovered.
It is vital that we raise funds to allow the project to continue its investigations into this histroic find and to help us celebrate the history of this important heritage asset through the development of the Waggonway Museum in Cockenzie.
So please donate what you can, and be part of this important community-led celebration of our nation's industrial past!
