The site includes remains of the Flockton waggonway tunnel, built between 1772 and 1775, which are protected with a Grade II listing

Found that on the YEP

That's just 'over the road' (well.... not too far) from the National Coal Mining Museum' up at Middlestown (on A642 between Wakefield & Huddersfield)

I believe the NCMM have various papers/maps/plans relating to it
