Opportunities for Local Businesses

If you’re reading this, you’re here at the new Settle Carlisle Railway website.  Welcome, and thanks for calling by.  The site has been redesigned by the Settle-Carlisle Railway Development Company with the aim of creating a portal to this wonderful railway and the wider region.  Our aims for this site are twofold:  Firstly we hope to develop a valuable resource for railway travellers and people who wish to experience everything that Settle Carlisle Country can region.  Secondly, we hope to give local businesses the opportunity to showcase their products and services to that wide audience.

Maybe you run a business in the region.  It could be a shop, a hotel, or café.  Or perhaps you’re providing a service to locals and visitors.  Either way, you may wish to promote it here.  You can!  Many businesses will benefit from being included in the Accommodation, Eat & Drink or Explore & More categories.  Aside from those listings, there’s advertising space available for anything else you’d like to promote.

Running in parallel with the lovely new website is the Dales Railcard Benefits Scheme.  We have thousands of railcard users who live in the area and we’d love to be able to offer them some additional benefits on top of the 1/3 saving they make on their rail fares.  The benefits scheme will enable local businesses to offer special prices and promotions to the railcard users.  There’s no charge to be part of the scheme – all you have to do is come up with a cheeky offer.  It could be a 2 for 1 promotion, an Early Bird menu, that’s up to you.  We will promote it for you.

Interested?  Then just drop an email to and ask him to get in touch.  He’d love to hear from you.
