Crowle Peatland Railway

The railway was formed to preserve the history and heritage of the Humberhead Peatlands, in particular the railways.

Peat has been extracted from the moors since at least medieval times. When large-scale peat extraction started in the 19th century a network of 3ft gauge horse-drawn railways was established. It was not until the 1950s/60s that locomotives started to take over from horses.

We have open days throughout the year from Easter with special openings at Halloween and Christmas.

Watch out for updates about our events on our website and Facebook page.
