The Iron Man Project - unveiling Ceremony 27th June 2003

Local schoolchildren illustrated different chapters from Ted Hughes' story "The Iron Man". Each chapter of the book complete with illustrations has been put onto weatherproof and vandal resistant boards and fixed to the platforms on the railway station. Faber & Faber gave their permission and Arriva Trains Northern approved the project.

This morning at 11.30 a ceremony to unveil the boards took place at the station. School representatives and sponsors and guests gathered on the platform and Hebden Bridge band were in attendance at the approach to the station. After the event everyone was invited back to the Good Shepherd for refreshments.
