Broadway share issue passes the £1,150,000 mark on 10 March!

Dear supporters of the GWSR,

I am delighted to be able to tell you that the railway's share issue reached £1,158,000 on Friday 10/03.

That's about £150,000 more than my last Blog posting  just over a month ago, and is directly related to the terrific response we have received to my letter to shareholders and the recent Broadway edition of The Cornishman, our members and volunteers magazine.

The only 'fly in the ointment' is the potential cost of rebuilding the embankment between the two bridges in Broadway. At the time of writing the share issue document (late 2015) I had used an estimate of £80,000 for this but our design consultants have recently indicated £400,000 is more realistic.

So, we shall need every penny of the £1,250,000 requested and for anyone still considering buying shares, the share offer remains open until 30 April 2017. The share issue document and application form are available on the website,, from the development office at Toddington 01242 621405 or email:
