Exley Lane Retaining Wall, Elland Bypass


Location east side of Exley Lane at its junction with Park Road

Grid Ref SE 107 215                            Date of Construction 1976

In structural terms, the wall is not remarkable, but I am pleased with the end result.

The brief which I set myself was to extend an existing section of masonry wall, facing existing walling where necessary in a style to match the existing railway wall which can be seen at the right hand end behind the lamp-post.

The wall is faced in local sandstone.

An old signal box on the Brighouse to Sowerby Bridge railway line can be seen above and behind the wall.
