Middleton Railway Line at Moor Road (Hunslet) (1 comment)
Black & White image1971. View of the Middleton Railway line at Moor Road, Hunslet. Part of Middleton Woods are visible in the backgound (known locally as 'Miggy Woods'). The wooden construction on the left-hand side of the track is thought to be a crude but effective boarding/alighting facility. It appears to be the exact height of a station platform.
