Honley Railway Station, Kirklees, West Yorkshire.

A favourite subject of mine for picturing has always been railway photography and whilst recently in the Holme Valley, Nr Huddersfield I stopped to picture some of the stations that can be found on the Penistone line running from Huddersfield to Sheffield.

This set was taken at Honley Railway Station which is now a single platform station opened in 1850. Until 1989 the station was served by 2 platforms but the southbound line was removed and all that remains now are some derelict coal hoppers and a overgrown inaccessible platform.

These pictures were taken using a Nikon d3300 digital camera on the 21st May 2016. I then used a orange filter in the editing to remove all colours and highlight only orange and red shades. Click the pictures to view full size on Flickr.
