Alston links:

The Alston Moor Business Association.
The official website for the AMBA full of information both about Alston Moor and Association members businesses.

Oliver Twist.
Not so long ago Alston took a starring role in the Alan Bleasdale adaptation of Oliver Twist shown on ITV. For a few weeks Alston's own identity was concealed behind the façade of Bruntmarsh and all our lives became inextricably linked with the making of the film. Sometimes it was difficult to separate fiction from reality. A town trail was set up to allow visitors to the town to see how the town was used. Although the town is now back to normal and the trail is officially over you can still visit the website to find out more information.

The South Tynedale Railway
England's Highest Narrow Gauge Railway.
Alston's most popular visitor attraction. The South Tynedale Railway has many special events and themed (Thomas the Tank Engine) days throughout the year. Why not take a look at their website for more details.
