Revision as of 19:32, 10 March 2020

In February 2016 the Wyre Forest District Council (WFDC) published a proposed revised Local Heritage List for the Severn Valley Railway, identifying historic buildings and structures which are considered to be of value to the local historic environment although not protected by statutory designations (ie 'listed'). The draft list included many assets on the SVRSevern Valley RailwaySVRA:Severn Valley Railway AssociationSVRS:Severn Valley Railway Society within the WFDC area, which extends as far as the border with Shropshire, approximately one mile north of Arley.[1][2] These are listed in the following table, with links to pages on this Wiki where more information may be found.

At a later date, further Heritage Lists were published for other areas within the Wyre Forest District, with those for Bewdley, Kidderminster and Stourport including present or former features of the Severn Valley Railway.
