AN iconic Yorkshire Dales railway has won more than £300,000 in Lottery funding to boost its heritage attractions and help secure its future.

The Wensleydale Railway has received a National Lottery Heritage Fund grant of £368,000 for an ambitious project which will see the restoration of the Victorian station building, delivery of an education and community engagement programme and provision of heritage-themed activities at Leeming Bar Station.

The project focuses on restoring the station house to how it would have looked in the 1920s, telling the story of the Wensleydale Railway from its creation in 1848 to the present day.
