We have grown so that we can do more for you…..


Looking forward we are working on making the Penistone Line a Dementia friendly service, and we want to encourage everyone to use and enjoy the train through collaboration and partnership to reflect the community’s needs.



We can offer taster days out with our rail confidence programme for community groups, so that everyone gets a chance to feel good about rail travel and enjoy a great day out.


Schools are back after the holidays and we are booking in rail safety sessions as part of the PSHE Curriculum.







Let's collaborate.....

We are working to improve information at stations for your onward journey. Inform travellers of cycling and walking routes from the station, which encourage sustainable and healthy journeys. We aim to highlight local heritage, business information and places of interest to visit near the stations. We look forward to working with new organisations, promoting and enhancing tourism and leisure travel by train.



Get in touch.....

Help us connect our communities together to support diversity and inclusion, well-being and social progress. Discuss the issues and development opportunities that matter. Contact Rowena at or to push some boundaries! 


Changes to this weekend’s guided walk

** AMENDED WALK ** Saturday 15th DECEMBER 2018 ** The Santa Hat Walk **

Due to RMT strike action on NORTHERN this Saturday, a much reduced train service will be in operation.

There is NO train service between Huddersfield < > Barnsley and no replacement bus service will run.

We don’t want you to miss out on our Santa Hat walk, therefore the proposed walk will be amended as follows :

We suggest to catch a bus from HUDDERSFIELD or drive directly to SHEPLEY.

(if driving, please park on a street with respect for local residents)

The No.83 Yorkshire Tiger bus departs Huddersfield bus station Stand F at 08.50, alight at the SHEPLEY Library stop at 09.32.

(someone will meet you at this stop to guide you to the station which is approx. 5 mins walk)

Walk starts : 9.40am from SHEPLEY station.

The lunch will be at The George Inn at Upper Denby.

(if you wish to go directly to the pub for lunch only, please arrive by 1pm).

If you wish to have a ‘pie & peas’ lunch, please reconfirm with Geoff Ryder directly :

Mobile: 07837 – 915847 or tel: 01484 – 864848 or email: geoffreyryder

Then after lunch, catch the No.83 bus at 14.48 back from Upper Denby to SHEPLEY or continue on the bus back to Huddersfield .
