SE1321 : Jumble Dyke, Rastrick

taken 11 years ago, near to Rastrick, Calderdale, Great Britain

Jumble Dyke, Rastrick
Jumble Dyke, Rastrick
Part of the old road from Brighouse to Elland, turnpiked in the 18C but superseded by a new road in the Calder Valley in the 19C. I would be interested to know what the building on the left was evidently a shop of some sort, with a blocked taking-in door and a girder for a hoist. The 1850 six-inch map shows a Smithy here. If you look at SE1321 : Jumble Dyke - Crowtrees Lane, Rastrick, at the corner of the road junction, probably in front of the steps, there was a turnpike road guide stone shown on the 1933 1:2500 map but probably taken away during the Second World War. I hope it in safe keeping, but where? On the Crowtrees Lane side "T Brook Sculptor, To JUNCTION 13 Miles, LEEDS 13 Miles, Anno Domini" On the Jumblr Dykr side "To LEEDS 13 MIles, ELLAND 2 Miles, 1823".
