A blossoming heritage railway in Northumberland has launched a £1.88m fundraising drive to allow it to reach its destination. The Aln Valley Railway provided a link between Alnwick and Alnmouth up until 1968. For almost 20 years, volunteers worked towards the reopening of the railway. In October last year, their blossoming project was officially opened by its patron the Duke of Northumberland. Now, railway bosses have launched the Let’s Get to Alnmouth appeal, which aims to raise the money needed to allow track to be laid all the way to the village’s mainline station.
