North Trans-Pennine Line Electrification Consultation

Historic England is holding a consultation from Monday 18 December 2017 to Friday 19 January 2018 in advance of the electrification of the North Trans-Pennine railway line (NTPL).

From the second phase survey of the NTPL we have selected 41 structures, using our published guidance. These will receive a full assessment for listing. Some of them are already listed and will be re-assessed.

A list of the structures is available to download below. We're now requesting any further information or evidence you can supply (such as photographic or documentary) relating to the date, function, history or materials of these structures.

How to respond to the consultation

To take part in the consultation, please read the supporting information below. The 'Trans-Pennine Route Statement of History and Significance West of Leeds' gives a detailed history of the development of the line and a route structures gazetteer. The photo books provide images of the structures, listed and unlisted. The Consultation Reports are grouped by local planning authority area.

In your response, it's important that your comments address the architectural or historic interest of the structures. Please also take care to specify which structures you are commenting on. Please email your response to Paul Fox (contact details below) no later than Friday 19 January 2018.

If you're aware of any structure within the scope of this consultation that isn't included but which you feel warrants assessment, this is the opportunity to mention it. We'll consider all suggestions, following the approach given in our Listing Selection Guide below on 'Infrastructure: Transport'. We will only include structures we consider to be good candidates for designation.
