Blackmoorfoot Road, North Crosland, Lockwood
Blackmoorfoot Road, North Crosland, Lockwood
This was the first turnpike road from Huddersfield to Manchester. It was part of a road from Wakefield Road to Austerlands (at the county boundary) authorised in 1758. The road climbed relentlessly from Longroyd Bridge to a summit near Blackmoorfoot, and then dropped down to Marsden. As the Colne Valley became industrialised this route became unsatisfactory and the present A62 road was built c.1820. The pub is the Craven Heifer.
