We are running an ongoing research programme into the history of the Wensleydale Railway, which runs from Northallerton to Redmire, and we would be delighted to hear from anyone who has a family connection with the railway or can help us piece together its story over the last 150 years. To get in touch, please email education@wensleydalerailway.com or telephone 01677-425805.
