Pennine Heritage Digital Archive: 

Index of Railway related material

Pennine Heritage, based in Hebden Bridge, has done a remarkable job of capturing many thousands of historical images of the Calder Valley and surrounding areas in its Pennine Horizons Digital Archive. Many of these feature railway related material, and below is an index to the railway images in the Archive, with images grouped by location.

The indexing starts in the east at Bradley Junction on the LNW Huddersfield lines and move progressively west to end at Wyre Dock in Fleetwood! The primary 'line' is the Calder Valley, with locations north and south inserted where they join or leave the 'main line'. Rolling stock and miscellaneous items appear at the end of the listings, along with the industrial railways that serviced dam construction projects. Although the archive includes a number of L&YR postcards, these are not included.

It is also apparent that a number of images appear in more than one collection, and this accounts for the apparent duplications that will be observed from time-to-time.

The Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway Society have made available a considerable number of their Calder Valley images (but not all). These are shown in bold with the their 4 digit LYRS image ID.

There are a number of images described as 'Bridge' in the North Dean area which could well be on the Pickle Bridge line but require further research to accurately locate them.
