Notice to all Customers and visitors

Following the surrender of the lease by the Trustees of Elsecar Heritage Railway in August 2020,  after a number of challenges further compounded by the pandemic, we will begin a consultation period to shape the future of a Heritage Railway offer at the well-loved visitor destination.

We are committed to developing a vision for the whole village, including a successful and sustainable heritage railway offer. The industrial railway heritage is an important part of Elsecar’s history and something we want to celebrate and remember.

Consultation in February and March 2022 will give people the opportunity to share their ideas about the future of the village, as a place much loved by local communities and visitors.

The future of a heritage railway offer will be an important part of that consultation and people and partners will be asked to take part in online surveys, workshops, drop-in sessions and other activities which will be a starting point for future change.

Local residents, business owners, volunteers and visitors will be invited to share their ideas about what they would like to see in Elsecar in the future, and what they can contribute to help make that vision a reality.

More details of this process will be announced shortly.
