Huddersfield Chronicle (04/Dec/1852) - Honley: New Railway

The following is a transcription of a historic newspaper article and may contain occasional errors.



For some time past the inhabitants of Honley Moor, Deanhouse, &c., have beheld, with some degree of astonishment and no little curiosity, the presence of a party of sappers and miners, who were examining and surveying the country to find the most feasible direction of a branch line from Brockholes Station to Brook's factory, Meltham Mills. We understand, however, that natural difficulties of an almost gigantic character present themselves, over which it is not likely, for the present at least, that individual enterprise, however speculative, will triumph.
