A unique pair of books detailing the life-changing introduction of railway lines to connect Ilkley to the nation goes on display this week.

The two books, valued at £500 each, contain plans by the Midland and North Eastern Railway for the new line between Ilkley and Otley and the line connecting Ilkley to Apperley Bridge, near Bradford, which came into being in 1865.

The line, known as the Otley and Ilkley Joint Railway, ran for 100 years until July 1965, when the Ilkley to Otley section was closed as part of the infamous Dr Beeching cuts.
