Area: Lancashire, North Yorkshire
SELRAP is a voluntary group campaigning for the reopening of the Skipton-Colne railway line as part of the national network for passenger and freight use.
The 11.5 mile link between Skipton (North Yorkshire) and Colne (Lancashire) would link the Aire Valley and Yorkshire to East Lancashire, Manchester, Preston and beyond. Although under increasing threat, the trackbed is essentially intact and the railway could be restored at a relatively low cost: any further incursion would destroy a resource of national value and would be contrary to government policies.
Meetings, open to members of SELRAP, are held every two months. To become a member, visit SELRAP's website.
