    Default Disused railway, bridges and viaducts - Horbury - March 2011

    This little lot are all within a very small area.

    I managed to cover, Crigglestone viaduct and curve as well as the old Royston to Dewsbury line and viaduct.

    Crigglestone viaduct.
    The Midland Railway viaduct at Calder Grove (known as Crigglestone Viaduct) has 21 arches and was built in 1906 as part of its never-completed Sheffield-Bradford route.
    The eastern arch sits over the existing Wakefield-Barnsley line. The former Crigglestone curve (Crigglestone Jnc to Horbury Station Jnc) passed beneath its western approach embankment whilst the central section towered over Pepper's Yard British Oak site and the old line serving the collieries around Flockton. From the westerly end you get a view of the former Harlteys coilery site.
    End-to-end, the viaduct spans 1,270 feet.












    Horbury viaduct.

    History unknown for this one at the moment, but I will find it out....








    Horbury disused railway line.

    These images are from various parts of both the Royston to Dewsbury line and also the Barsnley to Dewsbury line.

    That looks a really good idea, I have so many disused railway lines around me to ramble along, many bridges etc.
