LLMCRP Photo Competition Winners

The winners of a recent photographic competition held in partnership between The Leeds, Lancaster & Morecambe CRP and Northern Rail have been announced.

The competition was designed to get photographers to capture ‘the spirit of the line’ between Leeds and Morecambe (and Heysham Port). The competition was broken into three sections; Leeds to Skipton, Gargrave to Wennington and Carnforth to Morecambe (Heysham Port).

Photographs were submitted to Northern Rail and then displayed on a Facebook page. Winners have been announced in the first two sections but in the third most of the photographs were submitted by photographers who have direct connections with the CRP and so this section is remaining open for the rest of the year.

Leeds to Skipton Section

The winner was Joy Nightingale with a shot of Skipton station in full bloom with Richard Sawyer taking the runners up place with a photo of a fisherman in the Keighley area.

Gargrave to Wennington section

The winner was Michael Coupar with a wintery scene and the runner up was Kay Craven with a shot of the Midland Griffins at Hellifield station.
