Oxenhope to Haworth and Pictures In between

These pictures were taken whilst on a walk around Oxenhope and Haworth. The walk took me from the railway station at Oxenhope to Haworth station and back partially following the Railway Children route. This distance covered was about 3 miles.

The route I took runs alongside the Worth Valley Railway which was opened in 1867. The branch line was warmly received by the mill owners along the valley bottom. The line was closed in 1962 by British Rail and a preservation society was formed who reopened the Worth Valley Railway in 1968 as a heritage railway. The stations I saw along my walk were Haworth opened in 1847 and now the headquarters of the railway and Oxenhope which serves as the terminus for the line.

The pictures were taken on the 19th June 2015 with my Polaroid iS2132 Digital Camera.
