Welcome to the website of Lancashire’s Community Railways.
Lancashire is a county of contrasts. Explore the delightful coastal areas of the Fylde and Morecambe Bay with dramatic views across to the Lakes; the historic towns and cities such as Lancaster and Ormskirk and discover the quiet countryside of the Ribble Valley and Pendleside dominated by Pendle Hill.
Exploring Lancashire by rail can be fun and educational as well!! Did you know that Clitheroe has what may be the smallest castle keep in the country or that Colne host’s one of the largest Rhythm and Blues Festivals in the world? There is so much to see, enjoy and learn and it can all be reached using Lancashire’s community rail network.
Lancashire’s community railways not only form an excellent way to explore the county but they provide vital links for commuters and students travelling to Lancaster, Preston, Liverpool and Greater Manchester. Some of the Community Rail lines can be very busy in the peaks.
Through joint initiatives with Arriva Rail North and other partners excellent value tickets are available such as the Lancashire Day Ranger & Duo tickets that to help you go that bit further for your money.
Community Rail Lancashire also offers the unique DalesRail service that links Lancashire with the Yorkshire Dales, Eden Valley and Carlisle.
Situated on the forecourt of Sowerby Bridge Railway Station, The Jubilee Refreshment Rooms are operated by two railway enthusiasts, Andrew and Chris Wright, who have re-created the type of Station Refreshment Rooms that would have been available during the golden age of rail travel.
The building that houses the Jubilee Refreshment Rooms was originally one wing of a much larger station building that was built by the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway Company in 1876. The rest of the station was demolished in the late 1970s following a fire. Part of the surviving wing was last used as a ticket office until 1983 and another part was used by permanent way staff until 1997.
The Jubilee Refreshment Rooms was named Calderdale Pub of the Year in 2012. The Jubilee Refreshment Rooms are a popular meeting place for both commuters and transport enthusiasts and hosts many events ranging from whisky tastings to local history talks.
Hot and cold snacks are served most days, and free Wi-Fi is available for customers' use.
The Jubilee Refreshment Rooms offers a variety of cakes, a choice of Teas, a range of Coffees, Hot Chocolate, Fruit Juices, Soft Drinks and other Light Refreshments. Pie and peas, Jacket potatoes and Burgers are available from 12 noon six days a week, with last orders for hot food 13:30.
