Huddersfield Chronicle (15/Aug/1868) - Fire in Dungeon Wood
Fire in Dungeon Wood.
Yesterday afternoon, as Police Constable Ramsden was returning from Crosland Hill, he observed smoke issuing from that part of Dungeon Wood behind Woodfield House. On reaching the place he found the wood on fire, and instantly obtained a number of men from Dungeon Mill who, with water and other appliances from Messrs. Bentley and Shaw's brewery, stopped the conflagration, after it had consumed about 30 yards of the herbage. It is supposed a spark from a locomotive caused the fire.
