Jolly to Ribblehead

Gathering of the clan before the trek back to the Inn - Photo by Joan Glover

With thanks to Drew Haley and all at Northern Rail our intrepid band of travellers braved the British summer to venture into the mountain air at Ribblehead.

Some (young un’s Shirley & George)  went up onto the slopes of Whernside whilst most of us went as far as the viaduct to make sure the mortar was still intact.

We all (more or less) got back to the Station Inn for an excellent lunch before the normal Pennine arrived – but the rain did not dampen our day out.

'eh up, a Carlisle to Leeds train - ours is in two hours so best get to t'pub now'

Station Posterboard – for you?

The Station Partnership was given two boards by Northern Rail manager, Matt Gibson.

They are for general information and are available for community news and events.

If you have a poster either please email it to

or email the above address for details how to deliver your event poster to the Partnership.

Local History – do you have any ?

Posters similar to the ones below are now on display on the station platforms – and will be around the village shortly.

Do you have any photos of old Mytholmroyd – even the 60s and 70s will be of interest.

We will scan your pictures, return them to you – then make a poster for station users to look at while waiting for their trains.
