The Friends of Bennerley Viaduct thank the Erewash Partnership for supporting the project with Railway Paths Ltd to repair and re-open the “Iron Giant” for public use and enjoyment. The partnership made every effort to help the Friends take on a tenancy at Castledine House and to set up an office there. As members of the Partnership the Friends now have access to a wide range of support and new opportunities for inter-trading and networking with other members.
Now that this first project nears completion the Partnership is helping the Friends to prepare for the future when they will have a bigger role in caring for the viaduct and welcoming the many visitors it will attract to the area. The Friends of Bennerley Viaduct are pleased to be working with an organisation that shares its objective of bringing economic and social benefits to communities in Erewash.
