 "In 1986 I stayed overnight at the Bleak House B&B Kirby Lonsdale. The next day I met a man at an old bus at a Vintage car show in in the field near the Devils Bridge."
 
He told me of an idea he had for a Transport Theme park!
.............................................................
He got his dream some years later in the Transperance Park 1995
Low Moor.
 

It was short lived as it didn’t last long.

It had to close in 1997.

No one seemed to be interested? And the cost seemed too high for families.
