Storm Ciara – Flooding of KWVR

Storm Ciara has caused havoc right across West Yorkshire with major flooding being experienced right across the county. Sadly, we have to report that the KWVR, especially Haworth Yard, the subject of serious flooding on Boxing Day 2015, has not escaped and once again the Railway had to cancel services as Bridgehouse Beck burst its banks so flooding the yard and turning the trackbed through Haworth Station into a raging torrent

Here we present a collection of images taken by Paul Holroyd and James Horrell of the devastation created by Storm Ciara, swelling Bridgehouse Beck to bursting, flooding Haworth Yard and causing damage to track, locomotives, rolling stock and machinery around Haworth Yard and Station.
