Savile Park, Halifax.

A small set of 7 pictures taken early Yesterday morning whilst walking across Savile Park, Halifax. Savile Park is known locally by a few different names including The Moor, Skircoat Moor and Skircoat Common. The land was acquired by the Savile Family who asked that the land never be enclosed, since then the land has been used for the Halifax Agricultural show, Rugby League and Football, it is popular with runners and the local Grammar School Crossley Heath users the moor for sports. It was used in the World War II dig for victory campaign which saw the moor dug over to grow vegetables for the public. The moor has hosted the great Yorkshire Show on at least 4 occasions. 

It is bordered by Crossley Heath School to the west, Manor Heath Park to the east and features the Thorp Fountain on the north eastern corner.

Square Church Spire. (2018)

Square Church Spire is all that remains of Square Congregational Church, Halifax. Built alongside the Piece Hall in an area of Halifax known as the Square, the church opened on the 15th July 1857, it replaced the nearby Georgian Square Chapel which then became the Sunday school for the church. The church was used for worship until closure in 1970, and the main building was destroyed by fire in January 1971 and demolished in 1976 leaving only the Grade II listed 235ft high spire. The spire now forms part of the Halifax Central Library.

I have 5 pictures of the spire that can be viewed on Flickr, Here and Clickasnap.

Brighouse Railway Station, West Yorkshire. (August 2018)

This set of pictures was taken in August 2018 using a Nikon d3300 SLR camera. The pictures below are taken from my Flickr photo stream, there are an additional 2 available from this set also on Clickasnap via the links below.

Brighouse Railway Station was originally opened on the 5th October 1840 as Brighouse and Bradford. Upon opening there was no trains in to Bradford until the line via Halifax opened in 1854, the station was also known as Brighouse for Rastrick. The original station was closed on the 3rd January 1970 when the 6.53pm London King Cross to Bradford passed through and demolished shortly after. The station was reopened at it's original location on the 29th May 2000, nearby Elland was supposed to have a new station open at the same time, this is now expected to be 2022 at the earliest with an estimated cost of £22 million. Only 22 years late, kind of reminds you of the old British rail, we may be late but we get there eventually.
