Friends of Alton Station Donate


The campaign to save the 1892 wooden station footbridge was launched in August 2017. We have been fortunate to have received a number of grants and generous donations that have allowed us to save and dismantle the bridge, ready for restoration. We now have the task of restoring and reinstating the bridge in a new location.

If you are able to help our project, you can make a one-off or recurring donations online through our Just Giving crowdfunding page that is easily reached with our 'Donate' button above.

If you would like to make donation payments by other means, please download our pdf leaflet - the link is at the bottom of this page.


In 2017 we produced a prospectus for our project to outline the three phases of the project, as well as a brief description of the history and where the project was at that time. Although it is now out of date (a new version is in the pipeline), the old version gives you a good outline of the task in hand. You can download the prospectus here:
