SE2436 : Excavations, Kirkstall Forge

taken 2 years ago, near to Horsforth, Leeds, Great Britain

Excavations, Kirkstall Forge
Excavations, Kirkstall Forge
Parts of the ground have been excavated, presumably to remove contaminations resulting from previous use as an industrial site.
The car park to the right is for the new Kirkstall Forge station, which opened on the day I took this photo.
Kirkstall Forge Station, now open
Kirkstall Forge Station officially opened on Sunday 19th June 2016, although the site was accessible at least 2 days earlier. The station is served by 1 train per hour each way towards Leeds and Bradford, which should increase as demand increases. It is intended to serve offices and residential buildings which will be built on the Kirkstall Forge site, and has a substantial car park for park-and-ride passengers. The journey time to Leeds station is 8 minutes, considerably better than the scheduled time by bus. For those of us living on this side of Horsforth it offers a significantly quicker journey than going to the city centre by car.
