Navvy Line, Railway Cutting
1987. View of the Navvy Line, a railway cutting that runs from Neville Hill junction, behind the Bridgefield Hotel, alongside Cautley Road and through the Glencoes, St. Hilda's and Fewstons in Cross Green, before finishing up at Hunslet Goods Yard. One of the road bridges over the line can be seen here, but the iron bridge which carried the paddy train is no longer there.

User Comments:
