Take in the glorious views as you steam through the South Pennine Foothills, passing through Cuckoo’s Nest, the ancient Blacker Woods, Skelmanthorpe and the Shelley Woodhouse Tunnel (the longest tunnel on any 15-inch narrow gauge line in Britain!).

I’m including this one as it’s somewhere I have always wanted to visit but never quite managed. Lots of Herriot related memorabilia, as well as the restored 1940’s house, and a ‘farrier’s workshop’. I am secretly hoping Miss H will become a vet one day!
