Railway Services: The Pennines - Question (17 Jan 2019)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: My Lords, further north there is already a railway line linking Clitheroe in Lancashire to Hellifield, which is in turned linked to the Skipton-Carlisle line, that would open up enormous passenger opportunities. That line was closed in 1964 for passenger services, but has continued to be used for freight. Representations have been made to the Government by Lancashire local authorities,...

Railways: Transport for the North - Question (19 Jul 2018)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: My Lords, the Minister referred to east-west links across the Pennines. He might have seen the campaign launched in the north of England in February to reopen the Hellifield link, which I raised with him on a previous occasion. That link would restore passenger services on a line used every day for freight, for the first time since 1962. It would link Lancashire with Yorkshire and open up the...

The people of Yorkshire may also be able to come and visit the people of...

Carnforth Station (18 Dec 2014)

Lilian Greenwood: ...set in the home counties instead, but fortunately, the true location was given away in once scene, as perhaps those in the Gallery will know, by a platform board that advertised services to Hellifield, Skipton, Bradford and Leeds.

Orders of the Day — Rail privatisation (28 Jul 1988)

David Curry: ...and services at the beginning and end of the day. I welcome British Rail's assurance that the private operator can have the option of running his trains over British Rail track to Carlisle into Hellifield and, if he wishes, to run trains to Blackburn via Clitheroe.

Settle-Carlisle Railway (26 May 1988)

Mr Peter Pike: ...considerable interest in the line. Furthermore, the Government Chief Whip, who also sat through most of the debate, has an indirect interest in the subject, as his constituency is on the Blackburn-Hellifield line.

Orders of the Day — British Rail (Settle-Carlisle Line) (12 Mar 1984)

Mr Ronald Lewis: ...of the hon. Member for Dumfries (Sir H. Monro). I am sorry that he has left the Chamber. If this major route were closed, there would surely be a knock-on effect on the Skipton to Carnforth and Hellifield to Blackburn lines, thus leaving a vast expanse of Cumbria and Yorkshire without any rail facilities. Some time ago, Cumbria county council, in consultation with British Rail, issued a...
