Meet people, make a difference, and get involved in telling the story of Darlington's pioneering railway heritage.

Volunteer as part of the Stockton & Darlington Railway Heritage Project

An award from The National Lottery Heritage Fund has enabled a community engagement programme to celebrate the Stockton & Darlington Railway (S&DR).

The project is delivering a comprehensive activity plan along the 26 miles of the S&DR as well as a programme of small grants to empower communities along the line to organise their own events and projects.

Volunteering opportunities include the recruitment of Volunteer Ambassadors who will promote S&DR in their own communities and organise their own events, as well as themed volunteering groups, such as station gardeners and repair and maintenance teams, supporting events and activities, youth engagement projects and intergenerational volunteering.
