  • Yorkshire Sheet 263.13 Carlton Main & Shafton Two Gates 1914 - published 2006; intro by Alan Godfrey. ISBN.978-1-84151-910-2

    This detailed map covers an area on the northern side of Cudworth, near Barnsley. The map includes Upper Cudworth, with the Pontefract Road leading to Shafton Two Gates, then extending north to Lidgate Lane. For transport and industrial historians the most interesting area of the map is further west, for the map includes Carlton Main Colliery, the Hull and Barnsley engine depot, and the host of sidings and marshalling yards around Cudworth South Junction. Much of this area is now the Carlton Ings nature park.

    On the reverse we include a portion of adjacent sheet 263.14, extending coverage further east. This covers Brierley Colliery and part of Brierley village, incl St Paul's church. A good section of the Dearne Valley Branch is included, with Grimethorpe Halt.

    This map links up with Yorkshire Sheet 275.01 Cudworth to the south.


    You can order maps direct from our On-line Mapshop. For other information and prices, and other areas, go to The Index Page.
