It represents the remains of a wooden waggonway from Flockton colliery to the canal staithes at Horbury Bridge. Rails were used later and route alterations were made over the years. The colliery closed during a strike in 1893 and never re-opened. A rare survival. R. C. N. Thornes. West Yorkshire "A Noble Scene of Industry" The Development of the County 1500-1830, 1981. J.
