Bennerley Viaduct, business planning, June 2022

Bennerley Viaduct Business PlanBennerley Viaduct is Grade II* listed and is one of only two surviving Victorian lattice work wrought iron railway viaducts and is in virtually unaltered condition. The iconic Bennerley Viaduct was constructed in an 18-month period in 1877 and 1878 allowing the Great Northern Railway line cross the Erewash Valley.  Following £1.8m investment Bennerley Viaduct was re-opened in January 2022 after 54 years of closure.   As part of the Bridging the Gap project, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, the Friends of Bennerley Viaduct has commissioned Planning Solutions Consulting to ‘co-produce’ a business plan with the Friends to test the feasibility of the Viaduct as a visitor attraction and a venue for learning and leisure activities.  Find out more about Bennerley Viaduct here.
