Embsay & Bolton Abbey Steam Railway

Starting in the village of Embsay, just south of Skipton, we travel through the sloping green valley, bordered by crags and undulating hills. Before long we pass the Draughton Sidings, overlooked by the picturesque stone cottages which characterise this region. Continuing up the gentle slope of the winding valley, our steam-hauled heritage train then reaches Holywell Halt, a pretty area designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest due to the dramatic Craven Fault that runs in view of the railway.

From here our journey continues past delightfully rural farmland, with ancient stone walls and neat rows of verdant trees. We then run into the Stoneacre loop, a passing place for the locomotives that work this single-track line. Situated close to the quaint village of Draughton, this otherwise remote stretch is especially popular with rail enthusiasts. Finally we reach the line's terminus at Bolton Abbey, a station named for the nearby 12th century ruined Augustinian monastery.
