The Local Area

Like many valleys throughout this part of Yorkshire, the Worth Valley’s development is intrinsically linked to the woollen industry and throughout the 18th and 19th centuries mills developed at all points in the Valley to take advantage of the climate and abundance of sheep that grazed the surrounding moors. For many years the Valley mills prospered bringing with it growth in the villages that lasted many years. The decline of the woollen industry is intrinsically linked with the decline in prosperity in the Valley and the Railway itself.
