Old Railway crossing the Long Band
Old Railway crossing the Long Band
This short lived narrow gauge railway crossed Long Band at the back of High Crag, to ferry men & materials to No.3 Shaft and beyond. It was constructed by the Bradford Water Corporation. The PROW now more or less follows the line, it is marked by a sedgy band most of the way until it gets onto the limestone of Craven Moor.
In the distance are the twin pimples of Lord's Seat & Simon's Seat on Barden Fell.
