Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Apperley Bridge was a station on the line between Leeds and Shipley, West Yorkshire, England, between 1846 and 1965. Metro, the Passenger Transport Executive for West Yorkshire, intends to re-open the station, along with Kirkstall Forge in 2012. The Leeds and Bradford Railway opened on 30 June 1846. At first, there were no intermediate stations, such had been the haste to get the line opened. Temporary stations were quickly provided, including Apperley Bridge, which opened some time during July 1846. A permanent structure followed about a year later. It comprised two platforms, partly covered by an overall roof. The main building ran parallel to the railway on the south side up at road level. A principal customer of the station was Woodhouse Grove School, whose land had been crossed by the Railway. About 1849, the Railway agreed to purchase gas from the school in order to light the station.show more
