Photograph number: Buildings 101

June 2002

Site of the former Brierley Colliery and more recently Amco offices

This photograph was taken from the top of the old ďGinny runĒ looking towards Church Street. To give you some idea of where the view is, the roof you can see rising above the long flat building is where the entrance to the yard was from the Hillside estate at the top of Brierley Hill. A bungalow from Hillside Mount can just be seen on the right of the photograph. The new housing estate is built here now

Hansonís Smithy

The shop was situated on the right hand side of the road looking from the Post Office towards Barnsley Road. On the photograph you can see a road sign, which would have pointed left for Barnsley and right for Pontefract.

On the opposite side of the road to the Three Horse Shoes, a small triangular patch of grass and brambles is all that remains of the site where Hansonís Smithy once stood. The last blacksmith to trade there Mr Charles Hanson, took over the shop on the death of his brother George in 1912. It was the last of the three blacksmiths' shops in the area, the other two being at Shafton and South Hiendley, to fall a victim to the march of time. It was pulled down to make room for the widening of the road at the Three Horse Shoes corner around 1932. Charles Hanson protested vigorously, and appealed against the insufficient compensation paid to him. He finally obtained permission to re-build the shop a little further back in the orchard behind (now Haldane Close). Unfortunately, Mr Hanson died before this could be accomplished and about three years after his original shop had been taken down

The old barns Lindley House

The late May Beaumont Schofield informed me, that this building was actually older than the house itself. Over the years this building has been used as a fire watch meeting place and indeed a fire engine was garaged here at one time. Other uses have been a meeting place for Boy Scouts and Girl Guides etc. On the wall inside the building is a blackboard and May believes that at one time the building was used as a classroom for the children of Lindley House and other children of the Gentry within the village
