Yaxham Road Level Crossing Appeal

Unfortunately we were unable to do the work in October 2019 due to various constraints, this will now take place in May 2020.

Please help us now!

This is an urgent appeal for financial help to replace Yaxham Road Level Crossing in Dereham with a brand new, easily maintained crossing which should last at least forty years.

Our goal is to raise £150,000 and any help you can give will be greatly appreciated. By donating, you will not only allow this essential work to be carried out quickly but also to help to ensure the long-term future of the Mid-Norfolk Railway.

You can donate in the following ways:

  • Online - Scroll down the page.
  • Credit or debit card - calling Dereham Station on 01362851723 between 10am and 3pm
  • In person - at either Dereham or Wymondham Abbey stations on any running day
  • Cheque - made payable to MNRPT and sent to the Mid-Norfolk Railway (Level Crossing Appeal), The Railway Station, Station Road, Dereham, NR19 1DF

UK tax-paying donors are encouraged to declare the donation with GiftAid. This enables the railway to claim a further 25p on every pound donated from the Government.
