A READER has submitted a fascinating series of photographs and line drawings for publication.
Here we launch the series with some splendid images of the historic Woodsome Hall, nowadays the impressive home of Woodsome Golf Club.
The pictures were kindly 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.
They were 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.
These pictures feature views of Woodsome Hall Court Yard in 1850 (left).
