The Railway Children

The villages of Haworth and Oakworth on the famous Keighley and Worth Valley Railway in West Yorkshire's Bronte Country were chosen as the settings for Lionel Jeffries' 1970 film version of E.E. Nesbitt's classic children's novel "The Railway Children", starring Jenny Agutter, Sally Thomsett and Bernard Cribbins.

The film was re-made again in 2000, again with Jenny Agutter (this time in a more senior role), but for this version a different location in the south of England was used as the railway location.

In 2022 a much awaited sequel called The Railway Children Return was released, again starring Jenny Agutter (this time as a much older incarnation of her teenage character in the original film).
