The Evesham Vale Light Railway/The Valley Railway Adventure
Evesham Vale Light Railway's "Dougal" heads for Country Park Halt on the 24th July, 2011
The Evesham Vale Light Railway was originally built by Jim and Helen Shackleton on what is now "The Valley at Evesham Country Park" and was opened in August 2002.  Built to 15-inch gauge, the line is currently just over a mile in length and is open weekends, bank holidays and during school holidays as well.  There are two stations on the line: Twyford and Country Park Halt.  Between 2012 and 2024 the line was owned by Adrian and Sandra Corke; from February 2024, the line is now owned by David and Katherine Nelson-Brown, the owners of the Perrygrove Railway, and has been rebranded as "The Valley Railway Adventure"
The author often visits the line to photograph it, in fact it often acts as a testing ground for any new photographic equipment.
