The Back Honoria Street bridge, Fartown cycleway, Huddersfield
The Honoria Street bridge, out of sight, is a girder bridge like the others, but for some reason this bridge is arched. This railway was constructed in the early 20C (it is not on the map of 1907) to give the Midland Railway Company an alternative route to London, rather than paying for running rights on the London and North West Railway line. They intended to build a terminal station at Newtown near St John's Road, but the First World War intervened and a goods yard was constructed instead, now redeveloped as a retail and business park. As with human redundancy, it was 'last in, first out'. Several houses had to be demolished to build the line across these streets.
