Geographically the Trustís activities cover the line from Carlisle to Settle Junction; Settle Junction via Hellifield to Leeds and Hellifield South Junction to Blackburn.

However, for the foreseeable future, the Trust will focus on the route from Hellifield to Carlisle due to the wealth of historic and architecturally important elements that are contained on this section of route.
The Trustís activities are encapsulated in the following key objectives:

 1. Preservation, restoration, maintenance and protection of structures, buildings, plant and equipment connected with the above lines that are of historic, cultural, architectural, constructional or scientific interest, or exhibit craftsmanship worthy of preservation.

 2. Promotion of public access to the structures and plant and public knowledge, appreciation and understanding of the architectural, constructional or scientific and craft features.

 3. Promotion of public knowledge, appreciation and understanding of the historical and cultural aspects of the above lines, and the area through which they run.

  1. Such other charitable purposes for the advancement of education associated with the lines, and the surrounding area as the Trustees
shall think fit.
