Shipley Glen Tramway

David Starley, one of Saltaire's best-known artists, always produces a lovely Advent window. This year it depicts the famous Shipley Glen tramway, a legacy from Victorian times that is still kept running by volunteers. I love this window; it almost looks as if one is looking through the glass at the real tramway (albeit with a bit of artistic licence in the tree colours!)


  1. Hi Jenny - the Advent windows are incredible ... and this one especially, as you mention. The trees look a little like Hockney ones .. but these are all so beautiful and creative ... thanks for sharing with us - cheers Hilary

  2. O it is so many many years since I rode down that tramway - it was summertime though then.
