An Appeal

In light of the current government advice, we have made the difficult decision to close the railway until further notice.


While there have been no reported cases of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) at the railway, the wellbeing of our visitors, staff and volunteers is our absolute priority. Matters of health and safety have our complete attention, which has led to this closure.

Due to this WE NEED YOUR HELP. The Wensleydale Railway depends on running services and without operating this will have a substantial impact on its future. Please help by donating to give the railway a chance to be able to survive and expand once the pandemic is over.

Thank You
