Foxfield Light Railway

Caverswall Road Station, Blythe Bridge, Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire ST11 9BG
1893 Blythe Bridge Road Blythe Bridge England ST11 9EA GB

This light railway is one of the UK’s earliest heritage railways. The line was built in the 1890s and, unlike many lines which follow valleys, the Foxfield Railway maintains a 5½ mile round journey, which boldly crosses open moorland, hills and woodland.

You will experience spectacular sounds and sights as the locomotive climbs hills and as it as steams through scenic North Staffordshire, where it terminates in remote woodland. Here you will be able to see one of the finest unspoilt views across open moorlands.

You can also be an engine driver for a day and feel the thrill of firing and driving a full-sized steam locomotive. Driving a railway locomotive is an amazing adventure and a great gift for a loved one.

Facilities: Cafe, Real Ale Bar, Disabled access to most of site and onto trains (apart from Knotty Heritage Days). Ample parking. Dogs Welcome

Opening Times: Open Weekend April to End of October and December for Santa Specials. Trains operate Sundays and Bank holidays and some Wednesdays in School Holidays.
