Sheffield Civic Trust presents a talk by Chris Bell of the Don Valley Railway Campaign.

Following Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s recent announcement that railway services between Sheffield Victoria station and Stocksbridge are coming back, Don Valley Railway campaigner and Sheffield Civic Trust trustee Chris Bell looks at what the future might hold for the line.

With a promise of 10 minute journeys from Stocksbridge to Sheffield, a reopened train service could revolutionise public transport in the city – but what is the background to this announcement?

Join us as we explore the history of the Don Valley line, its success and decline, and find out what the future might hold for this historic line and for the city of Sheffield.


Tickets are £5 from Eventbrite or FREE for Sheffield Civic Trust members.
