SE0812 : Holt Head Road, Linthwaite and Meltham

taken 10 years ago, near to Holt Head, Kirklees, Great Britain

Holt Head Road, Linthwaite and Meltham
Holt Head Road, Linthwaite and Meltham
This was the first turnpike road from Huddersfield to Manchester. Eventually another was constructed down in the valley, and became the A62. The 'Old Turnpike Road' is mentioned in the Meltham enclosure award as being the far end of some of the roads set out by the award. The boundary between Linthwaite and Meltham is along the road for a considerable distance, so was perhaps undefined across moorland before the road was built. The road going off to the left is Jerusalem Road.
