blank image A railway station in this small village is the location of the famous Embsay and Bolton Abbey Steam Railway, which was originally opened in 1888 to link Skipton and Ilkley.

Trains run on the four-and-a- half-mile track to Bolton Abbey.
An Augustinian priory was founded here in 1130 but the monks soon moved to Bolton Priory.

Nearby is rugged Embsay Crag and Embsay Moor.
