A North Dean Woods Winter.

North Dean Woods are a typical example of British Woodland through the ages. They can be found on the outskirts of Greetland, Calderdale stretching from the valley bottom alongside the River Calder to the top of the hill, just below Norland. There are many paths to walk through the wood, but for these sets of pictures I took the one that starts at Wilson Bridge alongside St Stephens Church, up through the woods along North Dean Road, before following a woodland Path and finishing just before Donkey Bridge which is below Pickwood Lane, Norland.

There had been a reasonable snowfall the night and early morning before I set off for my walk so the ground was covered with approx. 4 - 5cms of snow. There are 46 pictures that can be viewed in 2 albums on Clickasnap, Flickr and here. The 15 images available in the Clickasnap album can only be seen there. The 31 on Flickr can be seen there as well as here. They were taken on the 29th December using a Nikon d3300 SLR camera.

The link opens in another window and non of the 15 images can be seen anywhere other than Clickasnap, I receive a small payment for each view of over 10 seconds at no cost to the viewer.

Brockholes Railway Station, West Yorkshire.

Brockholes Railway Station serves the village of Brockholes, Approx. 4 miles to the south of Huddersfield, West Yorkshire on the Penistone Line.

The station opened in 1850 and was the junction for the Holmfirth Branch Line which also opened on the same day. The station was known as Brockholes Junction for a time during the 19th century but had long since returned to Brockholes by the time of the Holmfirth Branch Lines closure 1959. The Beeching report in 1963 had marked the line and station for closure. In April 1966 the Ministry of Transport refused the closure of the line but due to goods traffic having ended in 1965 the station became an unmanned halt 4 months later. Some of the station buildings were demolished during the 1970's and the Station Masters house and offices on the up platform were sold in to private ownership. Again closure of the line was discussed during the 1980's. Arrangements were made in 1987 to keep the line open and the double track was reduced to a single line in 1989 with only the down platform still in use.

The station now offers limited facilities with a small shelter on the in use platform. The disused platform and buildings have been restored complete with heritage signage. It currently handles approx. 60000 passengers annually.

There are 7 pictures to view taken at the station on May 21 2016 using a Nikon d3300 SLR camera. 6 can be seen on Flickr with 1 exclusive to Clickasnap via the link and 5 available on both platforms.

Ribblehead Railway Station, North Yorkshire



Ribblehead Railway Station can be found a short distance from the southern end of the famous viaduct in the scenic setting of the Yorkshire Dales. It was originally opened in 1876 on the Settle to Carlisle and closed due to low passenger numbers in May 1970. The north platform was then demolished to allow for a transfer siding to be built and the southern one fell in to disrepair. 

In 1986 British Rail reopened the south bound platform to passenger traffic, and in 1993 a new north bound platform was built and opened. Restoration of the buildings was completed in 2000 and they are now operated by the Settle and Carlisle Trust.

There are a total of 21 pictures to view that are featured in 2 albums on Flickr and Clickasnap. They were taken using a Polaroid iS2132 bridge camera on the April 4th 2015.

Sowerby Bridge Coal Drops.

Sowerby Bridge Coal drops are a Grade II listed former coal delivery point that sits alongside Sowerby Bridge Railway Station. The drops form part of a viaduct, raised embankment that runs from Sowerby Bridge station to near the entrance to Dixon Scar Tunnel. They were built in approx. 1875 the year before the station moved to it's current site from the opposite end of the viaduct near the Tesco supermarket and were in use until the 1970's. They are now largely abandoned although the yard below is used from time to time by various companies. The Grade II listed status was granted on the 19th July 1988 and there was a plan recently to convert them to housing.

There are a total of 12 different pictures taken of and on the drops. 10 can be seen on Flickr and here with 2 exclusive to Clickasnap via the links below,

St Paul's Church, Denholme, West Yorkshire.

St Paul's Church is a seemingly abandoned but definitely redundant church overlooking the town of Denholme, West Yorkshire. It was granted Grade II listed status on the 7th March 1985 and was in use from opening in 1846 until a farewell service was held on the 5 September 1999 in the new graveyard, The last service inside the actual church was June 1997 when it was closed due to structural and safety reasons. There is no legal access in to the building now so my pictures were taken around the outside, although I would have loved to have had access inside the structure, there are pictures available online of the interior.

My pictures were taken on July 12 2016 using a Nikon d3300 camera. There are a total of 17 pictures with 3 exclusive to Clickasnap via the links below.

Use the arrows to navigate the album or view full size on Flickr.

A brief History of the Minster
There has been a church on or near this site for over 900 years. The minster which was a Parish Church until November 2009 was completed in about 1458. Parts of the church date from the 12th century and additions have been made several time since the church was completed.
Some of the stained glass windows were removed during the 17th century as
 the Puritan movement was prominent within the town, but where possible these have since been restored.

The following 3 links take you to my exclusive Clickasnap pictures taken at the church. Each view of over 10 seconds helps support my photography.




All 3 of the pictures can only be seen on Clickasnap and each link opens in another window.

The following pictures are from the Flickr album.
