Triangle Cutting

It was originally intended that the Sowerby Bridge to Rishworth line would form part of a short cut between the West Riding and Rochdale. It never happened and passenger services succumbed to the axe in 1929, long before Beeching started wieldling it. On the approach to Triangle, there's a deep rocky cutting which has been reclaimed by nature since the branch completely closed in 1958.
