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.
The Annual Bramhope show will take place on Saturday 11th September from 1.30pm to 4.30pm. Full details of the activities and how to enter the competitions can be found in the programme delivered through your door at the end of July. If you have mislaid your copy details can be found on http://www.robertcraven.org. We look forward to seeing you there.

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.
