About Us.....

 

A major part of Bristol's Victorian heritage has fallen into disrepair and disorder, remaining hidden from the people of Bristol, the South West and further a field.

The Clifton Rocks Railway was a major engineering achievement in the 1890s and operated for 40 years, transporting people from Hotwells Road to Clifton in passenger cars running in a tunnel in the Avon gorge on steeply inclined tracks. A special interest group has now been formed to establish a company limited by guarantee as a charity to raise the money needed for feasibility studies initially and then whatever the amount required for the restoration thereafter.

This will be a major project to restore and operate the Clifton Rocks Railway as a sustainable visitor attraction, which is fully integrated with other visitor attractions, transport systems and the Victorian heritage in the area. We need the help of local people, local businesses and others if this amazing Victorian endeavor is to be brought back to life.
