158755 Luddendenfoot 16 November 2015

With Sowerby's eighteenth century parish church dominating the horizon, 158755 passes a fine display of autumn foliage, as it enters the cutting on the approach to Luddendenfoot on 16 November 2015 with the 2M36 07:51 Leeds to Manchester Victoria Northern service. Luddendenfoot station (which closed in 1962) is principally remembered for being in the charge if Bramwell Brontė during the 1840s. Characteristically, Bramwell spent too much time in the local pub, and left a porter in charge of the station. When the porter embezzled money, Bramwell was sacked.
