Shipley Glen Tramway

Shipley Glen Tramway

The Shipley Glen Tramway serves as a virtual time machine.

Opened in 1895, Britain’s oldest working funicular offers a steep ride up to the sprawling site of long gone fairgrounds. An Edwardian sweet shop at the top station serves as a nod to that era.

But what about before that? Evidence that the site has been inhabited for thousands of years lies in its Bronze Age cup-and-ring marks. Take a scenic stroll across expansive moors to discover dozens of the carved rocks, largely found near Dobrudden Farm. Theories on how they were used by ancient inhabitants range from religious ceremonies to tools for shaping stone axes.

To know for sure, you’ll need to find an actual time machine. The Shipley Glen Tramway is a 15 minute drive from the hotel.
