14 May 2020 -  Coronavirus Update

The Vintage Carriages Trust Museum at Ingrow as well as the Keighley and  Worth Valley Railway remain completely closed with no public access or any operational services. 

We at VCT are working on contingency plans to be implemented when current restrictions are eased. This includes a risk assessment and a revised method of operation for our staff, volunteers and visitors alike to address all safety concerns when we are able to reopen. We are following government guidelines and would not anticipate a reopening before July at the earliest. 

The VCT museum is in good order and both the building and its contents are secure. 

Please bear with us and we will keep you informed of any changes as soon as this is possible.


20 March 2020 -  Coronavirus Update

Sadly, we have come to the decision that the Vintage Carriages Trust will be closing its doors to all, as of Monday 23rd March, until further notice.

This means we will not be allowing visitors into our Carriage Works museum or our shop, in line with HM Government guidelines. We are unfortunately unable to take magazine orders. For general enquiries, please contact:    admin@vintagecarriagestrust.org         

 Thank you for your patience!
