Kirklees Light Railway

Park Mill Way
Clayton West
Nr. Huddersfield
West Yorkshire

Ride on "Yorkshire's Great Little Steam Train" through the lovely South Pennines on this old country branch line. A quarter mile long tunnel adds to the thrill of this nostalgic 50-minute return journey.

The 15 inch gauge line was laid along the old Lancashire & Yorkshire Clayton West Branch Line which used to connect Clayton West and Skelmanthorpe with the main Sheffield to Huddersfield line. Visitors now have the opportunity to enjoy an 8 mile steam train ride through beautiful countryside.

General Information:

  • Large free car park
  • Spacious Café
  • Childrens play area
  • Souvenir shop
  • Picnic sites at both ends of the line.
