Barnsley and Huddersfield.
At a meeting of the inhabitants of Huddersfield resolutions were passed in favour of a project for making a railway from that town to the Barnsley collieries. The length of the line will be about seven miles. It is intended to commence by forming a junction with the Huddersfield and Sheffield, near the Shepley station, thence to pass through Skelmanthorpe and Clayton West to a junction with the Barnsley and Wakefield, near Haigh or Darton. The principal object of the undertaking is to reduce the price of coal at Huddersfield and other manufacturing places on the proposed line.
