'Broadway - The Last Mile' Share Offer
Stop press (4 April): We've exceeded the target of £1.25m!!! However, you can still buy shares or make donations - we need all the money we can raise to make our Railway even better than it is now.
In 2013 the GWSR ran a successful share issue raising more than £500,000 which was used to restore the 5 bridges on the line to Broadway in 2014.
Since then our volunteers have continued building the station and extending the line northwards, now within 1 mile of Broadway, using our own funds.
We need £1,250,000 to complete the Railway over the last mile and open Broadway Station in 2018.
By linking Broadway, often referred to as 'the Jewel of the Cotswolds' with Cheltenham, itself styled 'Cultural Centre for the Cotswolds' the railway will, for the first time since 1960, provide a rail link between these important centres of culture along a line of outstanding natural beauty.
It is anticipated that the opening of this link in 2018 will create a major new market for tourist travel between these important locations and bring significant economic benefits to the local area and community.
