Exciting new rebrand for Kirklees Light Railway in Clayton West

The popular attraction based in Clayton West, Huddersfield has recently re-branded as it celebrates its 30th anniversary year.

The rebrand, which occured on 17th July, included a complete name change, a new logo, and a brand new website launched the same day.

It is set to bring a fresh look to the already popular family visitor attraction, with the hope of encouraging lots of new visitors through the second half of 2021 and beyond, seeing the attraction through its 30th anniversary year.

Kirklees Light Railway opened to the public in October 1991 and runs along the old track bed of the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railways Clayton West Branch Line. It welcomes around 65,000 visitors per year, on average, and the 2021 season will run until Christmas Eve.

The attraction currently offers a range of facilities including narrow-gauge steam engines running on a three and-a-half mile scenic line through the countryside, a ride-on miniature train and two outdoor adventure playgrounds.

There are also plans to develop a new ‘jumping pillow’ as well as a new indoor activity area. During the summer holidays, there will also be a pop-up beach at Shelley Station. Whistlestop Valley are also planning a number of special events throughout the year to keep families entertained: from Dinosaur Ranger Adventures to The Wizard Express, as well as Halloween Ghost Trains, Mrs Claus’ Christmas Adventure, and not forgetting the popular Santa Specials in November/December.

Tickets for standard days and special events must be booked in advance at www.whistlestopvalley.co.uk.
