Stocksmoor Railway Station.

Stocksmoor is a small village station approx. 6 miles south of Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, which opened along with the rest of the line on the 1st July 1850. It has been unstaffed since 1966 with only a small passenger demand averaging approx. 450 people using the station per week. This is the last stop north or first south where the track is doubled, the majority of the line having been single track since 1989. It is doubled until the next stop at Shepley to allow trains to pass each other safely.
These pictures were taken on the 21st May 2016 using a Nikon d3300 SLR Camera. There are 11 pictures in total with 7 available here and on Flickr, with another 4 exclusive to Clickasnap only via the links below.

A Copley Winter Fall

Copley inter is a set of 11 pictures taken around St Stephens Church, Wilson Bridge and the entrance to North Dean Woods at Copley. The pictures were taken at the end of a recent snowfall on the 29 December 2017 using a Nikon d3300 SLR camera.

St Stephens Church, opened in1865 for the people who lived in the nearby model village. It is accessed now by crossing the Wilson Bridge over the River Calder, but when originally it was accessed via the then Copley Toll Bridge which was destroyed by flooding in the Calder Valley on Boxing Day 2015. The church is accessible on selected days now having closed in 1993, on this day it was closed and as I was only passing I only pictured the side that fronts on to North Dean Road.

The other notable building pictured is the former toll house for Copley Bridge. The house is a private dwelling that for many years was owned by a Mr Graham Wilson, who's name is given to it's replacement crossing when it opened in 2017. The name was selected by local schoolchildren. The toll house built in the 19th century is Grade II listed and sits opposite the lychgate entrance to St Stephens.

4 pictures are exclusive to Clickasnap only via the link below, with the other 12 viewable here and on Flickr.

Todmorden Town Hall.

Todmorden Town Hall is a neo-classical Grade I listed building. Building work commenced in 1860 and the hall went through many changes with architect James Green being the original designer, work stooped in the 1860's due to legal and financial problems, before the Fielden family purchased the land and hall in January 1866 at auction. John Gibson of Westminster was then appointed to redesign the building which was completed and opened on 3rd April 1875 at a cost of £54,000.

The building was built across the Lancashire - Yorkshire county boundary to help unite the rivalries, although this boundary was moved on the 1st January 1888, bringing the hall and the town of Todmorden within the Yorkshire county fully.

This small collection of 6 pictures was taken on April 22 2017 using a Nikon d3300 SLR camera. 2 are exclusive to Clickasnap via the link below, with 4 available here and on Flickr.


Both can be simply seen only on Clickasnap or purchased as a download or A4 sized print from just a £1.00

Sea Life Blackpool.

Sea Life Blackpool is 1 of a series of sea conservation attractions based around the world owned and operated by Merlin Entertainment. Whilst recently in Blackpool for the day I took an opportunity and the badgering of my daughter to take in there Blackpool centre. The price was £58.50 for myself, daughter and wife included a tour of the behind the scenes part of the centre. I have to say that I felt it was worth the fee charged.

I took many pictures and video clips using my Nikon d330 SLR camera. Whilst taking over 70 pictures I have only uploaded 29 pictures to view with 24 available to view here and on Flickr with an additional 5 exclusive to Clickasnap where they can be purchased as a A4 print or downloaded for free for a limited time. These were taken on the 17th July 2018.

Sea Life Attraction

Sealife Videos Part 1

These are a series of short recordings I made whilst recently visiting a sea conservation attraction, Sealife in Blackpool. Although some would consider the entrance fee of £58.50 expensive I thought it provided value for money and was worth it, this was for myself, my wife and daughter to enter the attraction and to gain access behind the scenes to the medical and feeding areas. There are a total of 9 short clips available here and on YouTube that vary in length from 14 seconds to 56 seconds and feature many different types of sea life including stingrays, Sharks, fish and even a turtle who doing his best to hide near the top of the tank out of view.

These were recorded on the 17th July using a Nikon d3300 SLR camera. The background music was added from the YouTube catalogue and is Calm by Silent Partner. Just improves the feel of the clips as there is a lot of background noise from people otherwise.

Brearley, West Yorkshire

Brearley is a small hamlet that sits between the mainline railway and A646 Burnley Road between Luddendenfoot and Mytholmroyd, West Yorkshire.

Brearley features a former Baptist Chapel which opened in the 1800's although closure of the mills led to the congregation falling as people left the area. Eventually the church closed and was converted to apartments. Not far from here on the route 66 cycleway in the direction of Mytholmroyd is a memorial to William Deighton, he was a tax inspector who became responsible for the Halifax area in April 1759. He noticed that his collections often contained clipped coins and having investigated, he began to pursue the notorious Cragg Vale Coiners, 2 of which Robert Thomas and Matthew Normington shot and killed Deighton in November 1769 in Swires Road, Halifax. They were acquitted the following August, but justice was eventually served when charged and executed for highway robbery in 1774.

There are 2 18th century bridges at Brearley, 1 over the River Calder and another over the Rochdale Canal.

These pictures were taken in August 2016 using a Nikon d3300 SLR camera. There are a total of 18 pictures to view with 12 available here and on Flickr and 6 exclusive to Clickasnap.

Dixon Scar Woods, Sowerby Bridge.

Dixon Scar Woods, also known locally Dixy Woods is a small woodland Nr Sowerby Bridge, West Yorkshire. It stretchers up a small hillside from the valley bottom alongside the River Calder at Hollins Mill to below Sowerby Bridge Cemetery. The mainline railway runs directly underneath the woods through Dixy Tunnel (Cemetery Tunnel) with fields Sowerby Bridge Cricket club and the river at the bottom of the wood. There are many paths through the trees in all directions but on the day I was there I followed one from the bridge over the River Calder at Hollins Mill along a route that led through the lower part of the wood and along the river's edge to Tenterfields Business Park between Sowerby Bridge and Luddenden Foot.

There are a total of 27 pictures to view taken on the 2nd September 2017. 8 can be viewed exclusively on Clickasnap where they can also be purchased as downloads and prints with prices starting at either free or £0.50.
