A READER has kindly submitted a fascinating series of photographs and line drawings for publication.
So earlier this month (Saturday, February 6) we launched a new Nostalgia feature publishing some of the splendid images and started with a look back at the historic Woodsome Hall, at Fenay Bridge nowadays the impressive home of Woodsome Golf Club.
The pictures were loaned to us by Mr Spencer Elliott, of Northfield House, Northfield Lane, Highburton Kirkburton. They originated from the former Pile Textiles Ltd, Bay Hall Works, Birkby Huddersfield, among articles stored in drawers and cabinets and sold at auction from a printing firm's Albion Street, Huddersfield, premises to Pile Textile directors Mr Wilfred Elliott, Spencer's father, and Mr D J Hirst.
This week the focus falls on Huddersfield’s parks and here we feature pictures of Greenhead Park and Beaumont Park – plus a scene that could have been set in one of the town’s parks or in an English country garden. We have no further details. There is also a picture of a grave and headstone carved with the name of John Thorpe.
It is not clear exactly where this is.
Does anybody know?
