('top end' of) Rothwell

Along the A639 Pontefract Road, which becomes Leeds Road (& crosses jct 44/M1)


They're all along the red scroll-work

The 'East & West Yorkshire Union Railway' went under Pontefract Road here, to service Rothwell Haigh (aka Fanny Pit) Colliery, via a spur

Scroll down to Rose Pit, for the topic photograph

What stone is the first pic carved in to?
Looks a bit lumpy!
I haven't a clue but I'm sure it isn't local stone..
Most local stone is igneous or occasional sandstone..
there is a few of these stone 'post' types around the area, I assume a contractor must have been built them (see example, not the actual one), I'll swing by at some point and have a closer look, I know of three with marks but this is the only one which I can see one on..a good excuse to go check the others

Any geologists out there?
St Austins
Wentworth Terrace

Also, a blue plaque;

Awkward to photograph due to foliage & traffic
BM on the wall behind my bike

It almost takes up the entire length of the street!
