Welcome to Ridgmont Heritage

During July we are normally open Wednesday to Saturday - 10am to 4pm.
Food is served 10am to 3pm.

Open on Sunday 21st July (Special Sunday Service on the Marston Vale Line).

Closed on other Sundays in July.

Ridgmont provides a unique journey into our local rail heritage and serves delicious breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea. It is the jewel in the crown of the Marston Vale Community Rail Line, and is run for the benefit of local communities by Bedfordshire Rural Communities Charity.

Friends of Ridgmont Station

As well as engaging thousands of people in volunteering, bringing people together and creating pride in station and community, Station Friends groups play a critical role in making their stations welcoming, pleasant and attractive places.

Their work includes maintenance of floral displays and gardens at stations, and design and painting of murals. They are also the eyes and ears of their local station reporting any faults and issues.

There are a number of volunteering opportunities available at the Ridgmont Station Heritage Centre – the Gift Shop and Museum are staffed by volunteers.

Please note it is not always possible to open the Museum at all advertised times due to a shortage of volunteers. Please call 01525 287121 in advance if you are making a special journey for the Museum

If you would like further details of volunteering opportunities please call 01234 832645 or email heritagecentre@bedsrcc.org.uk
