New Mill Road, Honley
New Mill Road, Honley
This was a new turnpike road, the Wadsley and Langsett Trust, in 1804-5. The mileposts are from Huddersfield to Sheffield. This photo shows a row of probably late 19C houses associated with the industry nearby, and later houses beyond. The road is built on a straight alignment on the flat valley floor, hence the speed camera warnings (the police radar car was in action today, but I was crawling along looking for something to photograph!).
