Pontefract Loop Line

Looking in the opposite direction from that of the previous picture a Bolton-on-Dearne to Blackpool club trip is heading towards Monkhill and will soon cross the 3-arched bridge over Knottingley Road behind an LNER Class B1 locomotive.

Two of Pontefractís mills can just be discerned in this picture; the mill in Water Lane can be seen on the right and on the skyline just right of centre is the mill on St. Thomasís hill.
