In 1892 the Pudsey and Low Moor branch line, together with the quarter mile long Greenside railway tunnel opened. The tunnel entrance is situated just below the Fox and Grapes pub and adjacent to the bridge carrying the Smalewell Quarry track. The line continued west towards Bradford, travelling across Pudsey Beck along a man made embankment, said to be the largest of its kind in Europe.
The entrance to the Greenside Railway Tunnel hidden in the vegetation
Although largely hidden by trees the route of the former railway embankment is still evident as seen just above the fence line with the light coloured gate
