#AYearOfBuses 128: DalesBus 821 Keighley – Scar House

With a touch of creative license, we’re taking a trip on DalesBus 821 today on #AYearOfBuses, into the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The DalesBus network was created to help people get around the breathtaking Yorkshire Dales and surrounding landscape on public transport. One of the most scenic routes of them all is the 821, ran by The Keighley Bus Company, which takes a winding meander from Keighley, in the heart of West Yorkshire, up through the Dales into North Yorkshire and onto Fewston, Pateley Bridge, How Stean Gorge and finally, the reservoir at Scar House.

If all of that sounds rather idyllic…well, that’s because it is. The Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty borders the Yorkshire Dales National Park, and as you’d expect, the 821, which only runs on Summer Sundays, crosses some of Britain’s most pristine landscape, with stops at Nidderdale’s only town, the quaint and delightful Pateley Bridge.
