WHICH are Huddersfield’s steepest roads?
The question for #AskExaminer was prompted by a BBC story which named the thigh-burning inclines in England, from the cobbled Gold Hill in Shaftesbury, Dorset - made famous by the 1973 Hovis advert - to the aptly-named Steep Hill, Lincoln.
Sadly, we don’t have a definitive answer at present and a Kirklees Council spokesman said it did not have a list of the steepest roads.
Several suggested South Lane, Holmfirth, Church Avenue, Linthwaite, Hoyle Ing, Linthwaite and Bank End Road, Golcar.
On Twitter, Paul Taylor said: “You may want to include Steep Riding in Brockholes - clue in the name.”
George Clarke tweeted us: “South Lane and Cooper Lane in Holmfirth. Absolute clutch killers.”
Jenny Gibson said: “The steepest I can think of is Marsden Lane.”
John Ledger said: “Staley Royd Lane at Jackson Bridge is a belter on a bike - just over a mile at an average gradient of 11 per cent.”
