SE1830 : Tong Street A650

3 km from Birkenshaw, Kirklees, Great Britain

Tong Street A650
Tong Street A650
The main road from Wakefield to Bradford and beyond. As the name implies, Tong Street lies on the course of a Roman road (though the course beyond here through Bradford is unknown). The truncated terraces and grassed area on the right reflects early seventies demolition for a road upgrade which never took place, hence the subsequent tree planting and atrocious congestion.
