Work is underway on converting a one-time parcel office at Keighley railway station into a cafe bar.

The premises, which latterly were home to the Musicians Centre, are being extensively altered and refurbished.

Behind the £80,000 project is John Mitchell, owner of the Cricketers' Arms in Coney Lane, Keighley.

“There is a lot of work that needs doing,” he said. “Everything is being taken out. All the walls that could structurally be removed have been. The opening will be in two phases – a deli/milk bar and then cafe bar – but at the moment we don’t have a date.

“It will mean folk can have a cup of coffee and a bite to eat before they get the train or when they arrive in Keighley.”

The cafe – which will be run by Mr Mitchell’s daughter Nicola and is creating several jobs – will operate from about 7am to 7pm every day.

An alcohol licence has been granted.
