The BWR is among more than 2,700 recipients to benefit from the latest round of awards from the £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund. This significant award provides much needed support for the BWR to meet its continuing costs until - and in readiness for - being able to re-open this year.
The railway is currently closed due to the current third lockdown. However we are working tirelessly to ensure we are able to open later this year. We're aiming to reopen later this month, all being well, and good progress is being made on many fronts to make sure the railway is in the best possible place to reopen.
