Tyne Valley Community Rail Partnership

About Us

Our core aim is to promote, strengthen and protect the role of the Tyne Valley Railway Line for residents, tourists, employees, and service providers.

The Partnership Board and Steering group consists of representatives of local stakeholders including:

Cumbria County Council

Hadrian’s Wall

The Metro Centre


Northern Rail

Northumberland County Council

Northumberland National Park

Tyne Valley Rail Users Group

.......and others with an interest in promoting and protecting the railway as a sustainable means of transport.

Northumberland National Park Sustainable Development Award We also benefit from a grant from the Northumberland National Park’s Sustainable Development Fund:

The Partnership is part of a network of sustainable development activities throughout the area that are benefiting the Park.

Sustainable development in and around Northumberland National Park is about promoting ways of living and working that allows people to enjoy life, businesses to prosper and communities to thrive. At the same time, it is about enhancing the natural beauty, wildlife and cultural heritage of the National Park and affording opportunities for understanding and enjoyment of its special qualities by the public. The Tyne Valley Community Rail Partnership is supported by the Sustainable Development Fund. If you would like to know more about Northumberland National Park, please click here.
