Darent Valley Community Rail Partnership

      Bat & Ball Station Poster by Kit Boyd


We have been working in close contact with Darent Valley Community Rail Partnership (DVCRP), to establish a vital and creative link between local communities and the rail services in the area. It covers over six railway stations; Sevenoaks, Bat & Ball, Otford, Shoreham, Eynsford, and Swanley.

As part of our connection with DVCRP, we have managed to successfully create a Heritage Railway uniting these six stations and inspire our communities and visitors to travel long this beautiful train line. Around the Station are visual representations of our partnership with the DVCRP; the large railway planter, posters & cards for sale, Rail Trail booklets, and events such as the recent May 2023 Photography exhibition. If you'd like to get involved, we are always welcome to new ideas and handy helpers Volunteering
