We also have a number of publications which are relevant to the Tramway and which are available for sale at either station.

‘The Shipley Glen Tramway’ is an outline of the history and mechanics of the Tramway.

A DVD is available which covers much the same ground as the above but also includes a filmed ride on the Tramway.

‘The Shipley Glen Tramway - its Pedigree’ traces the history of tramways since very early times.

Another publication traces the ancient track ways in the area whilst another is a collection of reminiscences of people remembering the tramway and Shipley Glen of their earlier years.

We also have a DVD with massive resources for a study of Shipley Glen, Baildon Moor and out to Otley Road beyond Farweather and Sconce. This has been used in schools as a basis for a study of the area and includes history, wild life, time lines, photographs, work sheets and suggested lesson planning with suggestions for use in most areas of the curriculum.
