The West Yorkshire Sub County Control

is at the junction of Elland Road and Bradford Road, Brighouse. It was built in 1962 as a 20 room underground bunker with a small surface entry blockhouse housing water and fuel tanks and the standby generator (now removed).

 In 1980 West Yorkshire Council (Now Calderdale District Council) built a two storey prefabricated office block on top of the bunker for the county waste authority. The bunker was abandoned after 1992 and the offices above are now also derelict and due for demolition. Subject to planning approval, the site is due to become a Tesco superstore and it is unlikely the bunker will survive. (see link below)

Wellholme Park Project

I will start this blog with a great presentation with permission from Chris Helme, who  regularly gives talks about Brighouse and surrounding areas. This is the first of a few presentations he gave in 2006 and it concerns the  Wellholme Park History Project 


1940's Weekend 6th and 7th June 2015

The date has been set for the ever popular Brighouse 1940s weekend.


Lock-keepers House

This is one of the most picturesque houses and gardens I have seen in Calderdale. It is on the canal side between the Red Rooster and Brighouse and even this photo doesn't do it justice, so I will be back this year to take a better picture.
