Welcome to the website for the villages of Bramhope and its neighbour Carlton.
Our intention is to provide local residents with a useful source of information about our villages together with local history and details of existing groups and organisations. In addition, by providing this information we hope others may be tempted to visit us here in Yorkshire.
Reports of Bogus Caller – Drain Repairs
The local Police have received reports over the weekend that a bogus caller has visited at least 2 properties in the Bramhope/Adel area and informs the resident that their is a problem with their drains which requires £4k work of work. In both cases there were no issues with the drains and the householders refused to pay them any money. Any residents who experience a similar incident should contact the Police on 101.(posted 26/09/16)

Across Leeds there have been a number of reported distraction type burglaries reported where a male has attended addresses stating he has lost his dog and it is in the victims garden. He has also asked for a bowl of water for his dog or some tea bags and sugar on other occasions.
Whilst distracted looking for the dog, or getting water, the suspect has entered the address and stolen items from the victim.
If any resident has such a visitor they should call the Police on 101 immediatley.

West Yorkshire Transport and Bus strategies – have your say
On Monday 18 July, a three-month consultation on West Yorkshire’s transport systems gets underway at Bradford Interchange. WYCA, in partnership with district authorities, First West Yorkshire, Arriva and Transdev are consulting on the draft West Yorkshire Transport / Bus Strategy.
Drop-in sessions are being held to find out what people think about local bus services and the county’s transport network. The feedback received will be used to develop new, 20-year West Yorkshire Bus and Transport strategies.
A full list of the drop-in sessions can be found at http://www.yourtravelyoursay.co.uk along with online version of the questionnaires, and drafts and summaries of the Bus and Transport Strategies. A team from the Combined Authority, along with representatives from bus operators, will be on hand at each event to answer questions and help people take part.
The Bus and Transport Strategies will support the recently-updated Leeds City Region Strategic Economic Plan’s target of sustained and healthy economic growth, and will update the current West Yorkshire Local Transport Plan. They will set out how a modern, effective and integrated transport system can help people make the journeys they need to for jobs, education and leisure.
Residents are encouraged to get online and take part in one of the online questionnaires.
