The former tramway, Fixby
The former tramway, Fixby
There were difficulties in finding a route through Fixby for the tram route from Huddersfield to Brighouse via Rastrick, and a private line on wooden sleepers was made across what were then fields from New Inn on Bradford Road to Fixby Road. Services started on 12th March 1923. Conversion to trolley-buses took place in 1940. The line became obsolete when Bradford Road and Fixby Road were widened and buses took over. This driveway and public footpath at the NW end is the only remaining part of the tramway.
