Pontefract Road (A628), High Ackworth
Pontefract Road (A628), High Ackworth
The A628 runs from Hollingworth to Pontefract by way of the Woodhead Pass and Barnsley. The section through High Ackworth is relatively narrow and twisty and the response to a campaign for an Ackworth by-pass in the 1980s to divert what was then a trunk road around the village was to "de-trunk" it! This road scene shows the road as it nears the last sharp left-hand bend before it turns North to leave the village for Pontefract.
