Benefits to Volunteer

Supporting the Churnet Valley comes with a whole host of positives and benefits 

Volunteering is not all about train – albeit that is a big part.
Becoming a volunteer on our railway is a great opportunity to help keep North Staffordshire's second largest visitor attraction running - and it is fun too!

Ideally located around the borders of South Cheshire, Derbyshire and North Staffordshire, the railway is a fantastic volunteering opportunity. The professionalism that our volunteers bring to the roles they undertake is always appreciated by our visitors.

Without the dedication of our one-hundred plus volunteers our railway would not survive. Not only can you meet like-minded people and spend time in the great outdoors but you'll make a difference to the local area so loved by many.
