Forest Of Bowland Gateway Leaflet Published

Four of the stations along the Bentham Line have been designated as Gateways to the Forest of Bowland. Wennington, Bentham, Clapham and Giggleswick are all on the edge of the Forest and have access on foot and by cycling.

A new leaflet, Forest of Bowland AONB, The Bentham Line Gateway Stations, has been produced as part of the existing Rail to Trail series and will be available to pick up from the stations shortly. The leaflet can be downloaded as a PDF by clicking this link: Bowland Gateway Stations.
