Ashington’s Missing Mile – The Butterwell Branch

From our last Committee Meeting, held on 23rd June 2017, the Committee discussed in depth the groups plans for the Butterwell Branch running to the north of Ashington, Northumberland. 

Approximately one mile in length, hence the title, we are currently working upon a scheme to bring trains back to the section lying immediately north of Ashington and south of the A1068. These plans are still in formative stages, but we have a good working relationship with the landowner and hope to keep this project progressing. 

Please take a look around our blog for more information or visit our other more permanent website for more details about the group and our plans:

We hope to post more information about the Missing Mile soon! Thanks, RH.
