Ways to support Castlefield Viaduct

Underneath the viaduct

Costing £1.8 million, the pilot project has been made possible thanks to funding raised by players of People’s Postcode Lottery, as well as private donations which will cover two-thirds of the build costs. However we still need to raise more funds to help make this project happen, and secure the future of the viaduct.

Ways to support

Our current supporters

People's Postcode Lottery

Vital funding for the project was raised by players of People’s Postcode Lottery: a subscription lottery which raises money for charities.

Laura Chow, Head of Charities at People’s Postcode Lottery, said: “Having access to green spaces and being able to connect with nature has such a huge impact on our wellbeing, so I’m delighted funding raised by our players is helping bring this to Manchester’s city centre and breathing life into this iconic piece of the city’s heritage at the same time. I’m really looking forward to seeing the project come alive in July.”

Private donations

We’d also like to thank those individuals who have contributed to the project so far. As a charity, we depend on donations to help us carry out vital conservation work and revive special places like Castlefield Viaduct. Funds raised for this project will go towards delivering the first stage of the project, and enable us to continue planning for the future of the viaduct.
