Talk: Over the Mountain from Keighley to Queensbury
SAT 16 MAR 2019
Join us on 16 March at 1.30pm for a free talk arranged by the Cliffe Castle Support Group.
The history of the old Great Northern Railway which linked Keighley to Bradford and Halifax.
The talk will look at the massive engineering challenge to cut through the high level terrain to allow Keighley to be linked with the isolated mill villages of Cullingworth, Denholme and Thornton. It will feature the effect the navvies has on the surrounding villagers life and local constabulary! It will also tell the transformation of the abandoned line back to a popular cycle trail.
