Venue: Burley Railway Station car park
Description: This will be a walk back along memory lane to the pre-Beeching days of steam trains in Burley. Bill Smith, who worked as Signaller at Burley Signal Box for 20 years, will share his memories of the Wharfedale Line as described in his recent publication ‘Railways in Wharfedale’. The 3 mile walk will take us alongside the existing railway then walk a section of the disused line towards Otley, before returning to Burley along Eastfield Lane. Bill will be accompanied on the walk by Norman Simpson, a local historian with an interest in railway and industrial history. We aim to be back in Burley for 12.00pm. There are no stiles.
Booking: Required – limit on numbers (28)
