Clayton West Branch Line

There's not much to see here at the moment but we hope to add more details about this topic at a later date :-)

Constructed by the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway Company (L&YR), the line opened on 1 September 1879.

Stations were situated at Skelmanthorpe and Clayton West.

The line closed to passenger services in January 1983.

Construction on a minimum-gauge railway began in 1990, with the first section (Clayton West to Cuckoo's Nest) opening the following year. By 1997, the line had been extended to a western terminus at Shelley Woodhouse.
