Jar is living in Yorkshire and when he sees an interesting article in the media he makes me aware of this. I like this very much.
Here's an interesting article about The Setts in Haworth Main Street. Just in case you have not come across the word "Setts", it's the Yorkshire word for the cobble stones which make up Haworth Main Street.
Work to restore Haworth’s historic setts will halt shortly before next month’s 1940s Weekend celebration, then begin again in October.
Bradford Council’s principal traffic and highways officer, Keith Escritt, said the workers had been lucky with the weather since they began the job on Main Street in January.
He said: “They’ve been cleaning out the joints between the setts around the bottom of the street.
“They should get as far as the Fleece pub by the end of this month.” This year’s 1940s Weekend will take place on May 14 and 15. Mr Escritt said the workers would make sure they removed their material from Weaver’s Hill car park in time for the event. He said: “When we restart in October we hope to complete the stretch from the Butt Lane area to the top of Main Street, depending on the weather.
“We’ve got to relay a lot of the setts on West Lane. “Then we’ve got the asphalt stretch between the car park there and North Street. “We’re thinking of removing the asphalt and revealing the setts underneath.”
Coun Huxley said: “I think they’ve done a first class job on the setts. “Bradford Council deserves some praise because it’s really got on with it and this is something that will last for a long time.” In response to a query from Mike Hutchinson, of the Haworth Village Association, Mr Escritt said: “I’ve been told that we’ve got funding for this scheme for the next two years.”
