Yorkshire's Railways and Industrial Heritage

Yorkshire sat at the heart of the Industrial Revolution in England, and today the region's many museums, historic canals and heritage steam railways are testament to Yorkshire's industrial past. This wonderful new tour takes us on two railway journeys through Yorkshire’s unspoilt landscape via the North Yorkshire Moors Railway and the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway.

The North Yorkshire Moors Railway Covers a distance of 18 miles, and is one of the UK's longest heritage railway lines, running through the beautiful North York Moors National Park, connecting the picturesque market town of Pickering and the village of Grosmont. The Keighley and Worth Valley Railway is a five mile long branch line that served mills and villages in the Worth Valley and was built as a single track between 1864 – 1867, when a public passenger services on the Worth Valley commenced. If this were not enough, in complete contrast, no visit to Yorkshire’s past can be complete without a visit to the Bronte Parsonage in Howarth, home to the three famous literary sisters, Charlotte, Emily and Anne Bronte. The picture is complete with the stunning National Railway Museum in York and Leeds’ Industrial Museum, Armley Mills.

Your host and guide is Tim Bryan, who is an experienced museum professional with many years experience in the care and management of industrial and transport collections. He is currently Head of Collections and Interpretation at the British Motor Museum and was General Manager at STEAM Museum, Swindon. His books include Railways in Wartime, 2011 and The Great Western Railway, 2010.
