Manchester to Cleethorpes Via The Hope Valley Line

Image showing the cover of the Manchester to Cleethorpes Via The Hope Valley Line driver's eye view film

Narrated by Alan Hardwick and written by Peter Middleton, The Hope Valley line seen from a class 185 DMU from Manchester Piccadilly on one of the hourly Transpenninexpress services to Cleethorpes, running via Stockport and the scenic Hope Valley route over the Pennines to Sheffield. From Sheffield the landscape changes from one of hills and heavy industry to the rural flatlands of North Lincolnshire.

One of the highlights of this journey of contrasts, is the much photographed array of semaphore signals at Wrawby Junction, viewed from the Driver's cab just weeks before abolition. Threading our way through the back streets of Grimsby Town on a single line, we finish our journey at the popular seaside town of Cleethorpes.

Filmed in the summer of 2015.

Running Time:  127 Minutes
