Lineside Photographic Permit

To be allowed out onto the Trackside to take your favourite shot, you must be both a member and in the possession of a valid Lineside Photographic Permit

The Keighley & Worth Valley Railway have a strictly enforced policy towards allowing photographers onto the Railway’s land in pursuit of that perfect shot.

If you are a photographer, aged 16 or over, you are welcome to take photographs from the lineside provided you are a member of the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway Preservation Society and hold a current annual lineside photography pass.

Lineside passes are valid for ONE year from the date of issue and cost £20. If you are not a member then it will be necessary to apply for membership in addition to the cost of your photographers permit.

New passes and renewal of existing passes are to be applied for a minimum of 4 weeks in advance.

When you apply for your lineside photography pass, you will receive a copy of the Railway’s Photographer’s Personal Safety Handbook. This has to be read, understood and a Personal Safety Self-assessment Form completed to ensure applicants fully understand the implications of venturing out onto Railway property. In addition EVERY photographer MUST wear an ORANGE high visibility vest or jacket and carry their lineside pass at all times.

For more details about obtaining a lineside pass and to receive your application form, Photographer’s Personal Safety Handbook, Personal Safety Self-assessment Form and Conditions of Use, e-mail membership@kwvr.co.uk with the subject header, Lineside Photographic Permit or contact Haworth Station office during opening hours 09.30 – 16.30.
