Weʼre raising £5,000 to help restore the last original railway building in the town of Bishop's Castle. The Weighbridge building which dates from 1865.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The last original railway building on the site of the old Bishop's Castle Railway Station needs rescuing before it is lost forever. The objective of the project is to restore the 1865 building in sympathy with the original structure ensuring the building's future and enabling the heritage of the building to be understood by the wider public. Following restoration, it is proposed that the building could be used as an exhibition venue, a meeting room for small groups and as an interpretation space for understanding the role of the Bishop's Castle Railway in the development of the town.

Thank you to all our supporters. I can tell you that we have now removed the electricity pole you can see in the photograph, so that's another obstacle out of the way.
