Calverley Cutting (Calverley)
Black & White imageUndated Calverley Cutting is a road which was cut through sandstone rock to replace the old packhorse way in the 1850s. It was part of a scheme to develop the area for luxury residential which proved unsuccessful. A quote from 1857 describes Calverley Cutting as follows, 'although the new road might be shorter it was so steep that it was almost impossible for a weakly person to ascend it, whereas the old road by winding round the hill was pleasanter to travel and had some of the finest prospects in Yorkshire'. Calverley Cutting went from Carr Road to Apperley Bridge.
