Tunnel shafts off Merton Street, Huddersfield
Tunnel shafts off Merton Street, Huddersfield
Massive ventilation shafts, one on each of the two parallel railway tunnels. Springwood Street used to be on the line of the tunnels, but much of it has disappeared under car parks and the ring road.

The following is a quotation from the Wikipedia article:

"The first section of the line, between Huddersfield and Stalybridge, was opened by the Manchester, Stockport and Leeds Railway on 1 August 1849."
