LAST week’s building was the former Methodist Chapel, now the Beamsley Project, near Bolton Abbey.

When the congregation dwindled in the 1990s, the Beamsley Project Charitable Trust was set up, with the aim to provide self-catering, accessible holiday accommodation for people with all kinds of disabilities.

The buildings have been lovingly modified, keeping the character but providing excellent facilities to cater for all guests needs, however complex.

The trust welcome groups in the 24-bed centre and families and individuals in the cottage which are both fully accessible. There is a wide range of hoists and aids to support visitors.

The charity believes it is a stepping stone for all to enjoy the Dales. Visitors have endless possibilities to create lasting memories and experiences that not only refresh the soul but also harness their desire for adventure.

Visitors can relax in the gardens, enjoy a picnic or spend time with friends in the ‘log circle’. There is also access to crafts, music, drama and cooking and People First Keighley runs independence training.

There is also hand cycling, canoeing and horse riding, all of which have been enjoyed by groups staying at Beamsley. Close co-operation with neighbours such as Hesketh Farm Park, Bolton Abbey Estate and the Yorkshire Dales Railway also ensures that visitors receive a great welcome. The friendly Beamsley team can advise on the endless possibilities to make the most of a stay.

A spokesperson said: “In these challenging times, Beamsley has not been able to welcome visitors during the pandemic and this has had an impact on our sustainability. Last year through fundraising by the Friends of Beamsley Project a bursary was launched to support individuals who were struggling financially to stay. Sadly, this year they have been unable to support the work with their fund raising. Trustees would welcome any offers of support and encouragement from individuals and corporate bodies. "
