Substation and Switchgear, Huddersfield

Most people will find this building diminutive, but every time I drive past it, it captures my imagination, simply wondering why an electric substation and switchgear house would be build to resemble a chapel. A testament to the care that was offered to everything that would happen to be created.

Not much remains of the industrial infrastructure that would line the network of streets coming off Leeds Road in Huddersfield, and I will be sad to see this last allusion to the civic pride of West Yorkshire’s industrialists.
