Walking

The railway allows access to numerous walks around the surrounding countryside and villages.

Take advantage of our "ride all day" fares and access one of the many walks from one of our stations.

Single tickets are also available from our Ticket Office if you choose to either start or end your walk with a trip on the railway. 

Walking routes around Clayton West, Skelmanthorpe and Shelley are accessible from the railway and can also be accessed from our intermediate stations at Cuckoo's Nest and Skelmanthorpe.

If you would like to either board or leave the train at either of the intermediate stations, please speak to the guard or driver beforehand or give a clear signal to the guard to stop the train. 

If you would like to walk a little further afield, such as to Denby Dale or Emley, this is  possible using the vast footpath network surrounding the railway.

Shepley Station - Shelley Station Link

A walking route between the mainline railway station at Shepley and our station at Shelley has been created, allowing passengers who are travelling by train to easily access our station at Shelley.  The walking route was developed by the Penistone Line Partnership and is signposted by waymarkers.
