The Bottom of Cuckoo Hill in the early 1900's
The Gregory Springs Railway?
Well it never carried passengers, at least
officially, but as you see on the 1858 O/S map there was one. It was a pit railway to carry coal from the Gregory Springs Colliery who's shaft was located at the top of Cuckoo hill, (you can still
see it today) down to the barge moorings on the River Calder at the bottom of Hagg Lane and Boat House Lane.
