Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

We all have historical sites in our own neighbourhood which rarely seem to raise interest! In our village, we have this remnant of a once busy tramway!

This was part of Colne and Trawden Light Railway.
The first tram into Trawden ran from the nearby town of Colne to Trawden's Rock Hotel, on 22nd June 1904.

This section of the track was built a little later, in 1905. (At the top of the trackway, there is still a piece of the metal track in evidence. I will show it as a workshop.)

The last tram to Trawden ran on 3rd June 1928.
At this point, omnibuses took over the role of public transport into the village!

Isn't it interesting how tramways have gained popularity in modern cities, but not in towns and villages!

I hope I haven't bored you with this, Bev :-)
