  • also known as: Spinksmire Halt
  • location: accessed via footpath from Helme to Spinksmire Mill
  • status: no longer exists
  • category: railway feature

An unmanned halt on the Meltham Branch Line built after the railway company abandoned their plan to create a spur to service Meltham Mills on the grounds of cost.

Unlike the other stations on the line that were built of stone, the halt was a wooden shelter that was destroyed by fire in the early 1900s leaving only the platform. The halt was closed to passengers in September 1934.[1]
