Site of Siddal Brick Works, Halifax
The 1905 OS 1:2500 map shows the buildings of the brickworks on the site of the social club on Siddal Lane. From it there was a tramway up the hillside to a day hole, but I could see no trace of it. There are stables in the centre of the scene, where there was a group of buildings at the end of a former street called Morton's Place. From this there was a track up the hillside between the green and brown fields on the right. This never became a right-of-way. The houses beyond the green field are in Siddal, and the built-up area of Halifax is in the distance, with Wainhouse Tower on the horizon. The wood in the middle ground is quite young - it is not shown on the 1:25 000 map, which I believe was last fully revised in 1989.
