Coal chutes, Sowerby Bridge, Yorkshire
Coal chutes, Sowerby Bridge, Yorkshire
A once-common feature of Britain, most such coal chutes had disappeared by the time this 1987 photograph was taken. The ones here are intact, but out of use: coal is now delivered to the yard by lorry. There are 14 chutes in the picture which gives some idea of the very heavy coal traffic once reaching this area by rail.
