About This Live Project

Our project looks at the disused railway which used to run from Scarborough to Whitby. The line passes through urban, suburban and rural areas along its 22 mile length. At present it is successfully used as a recreational walking and cycling route aswell as by horse riders and even commuters as a traffic free means to get to work. 

Working with Scarborough council, Friends of the Old Railway and other groups and members of the public we hope to raise awareness of this fantastic resource, highlight areas of improvement and produce a strategic masterplan for its future development.

Adding the final touches to our presentation the team is looking forward to the meeting tonight. It will be interesting to gauge the reactions from those present and get more of an idea of what is desired from us whilst working on the project. It will also be a useful exercise for us to see what the current aspirations are for the line, and to see if we can bring any new proposals and ambitions. The team believes that there is great potential for the old railway line and that if enough community support can be generated then it could flourish.
