Welcome to the Greenside Greenway website

What are you trying to do?

In order to preserve the Greenside Tunnel for future generations, we want to turn it into something useful, rather than just leave it to become derelict. The obvious answer is to turn it into part of a greenway.

What is a greenway?

A greenway is a dedicated track for non-motorised users. These include pedestrians, cyclists, and horse riders. Some examples already in existence are the Spen Valley Greenway and the Two Tunnels Greenway

What is the plan?

We have already been in discussions with Sustrans who have a wealth of experience in converting old railway lines to Greenways. The first step will be to fund a feasibility study that will identify who owns the land, and the potential costs for the project. The cost for the feasibility study is £13,500.
