Keighley Tramways Company constructed a horse-drawn tramway from Ingrow through Keighley to Utley. Services started on 8 May 1889. The service was never financially successful. The only dividend ever paid by the company was when it was wound up.
The company sold out to Keighley Corporation in 1901. The 30 horses and 6 tramcars and other equipment were sold at auction for £804. The service was modernised and continued as Keighley Corporation Tramways.
