Churnet Valley Railway


Kingsley and Froghall Station,
ST10 2HA


The Churnet Valley Railway takes you on a journey back to the classic days of railway travel on a rural line that passes through beautiful countryside known as Staffordshire's "Little Switzerland".

Our picturesque stations offer lots of interest with a complete range of visitor facilities, and there's plenty more to see and enjoy along the way.

In addition to the 11 mile return journey along the valley, there's a taste of contrasting moorland scenery on the 9 mile round trip along the Cauldon Lowe branch as far as Ipstones loop.
