raised of £2,000 target by 20 supporters

    Weʼve raised £445 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!

    Cockenzie, East Lothian
    Funded on Sunday, 1st March 2020

    What is crowdfunding?

    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!

      Wow! £300 in the first few days - and it's all down to you! Everyone at the Waggonway Project is hugely grateful for your generosity and send their thanks. Going forward, if you can, please help us keep the momentum going by sharing our crowdfunding page via email, Facebook and Twitter and I'm sure we'll boost that total towards the target!
