The Keighley and Worth Valley Railway is one of Yorkshire's top attractions - and you can get 20% off the price of a ticket with Transdev Treats!
The Worth Valley branch out of Keighley climbs up the valley serving several small Pennine villages along the way. At Oakworth, the railway leaves the valley of the River Worth and enters the valley of Bridgehouse Beck, wherein lie Haworth and the line’s terminus at Oxenhope.
The line opened in 1867, funded predominantly by local wealthy mill owners. Within a very short time, the railway became part of the Midland Railway until in 1923 at the Grouping, it was absorbed into the new London Midland and Scottish Railway. Upon Nationalisation in 1948, the line became part of British Railways, and with its fortunes declining with the rise of competition from the roads, the branch closed in 1962.
Much local opposition to this saw the rise of the KWVR Preservation Society and by their efforts, the railway reopened in 1968.
Brontebus runs parallel to the railway between Keighley, Haworth and Oxenhope, so you can really make a day of it hopping between bus and train.
