Cowling – Postcard #8

This is a postcard scene of Cowling in West Yorkshire.  The postcard is unused and is in good condition.  It is part of a series published by F. Frith & Co. Ltd of Reigate.

The location is on the outskirts of the village on the main road to Colne, in Lancashire.

The building on the right is the Black Bull public house.  This has sadly closed down and the building is now used as a pine and oak furniture shop.

In the far distance at the top of the postcard you can just make out Cowling Pinnacle.

The photograph below was taken on a recent visit to Cowling.  I couldn’t quite get in to  the same spot in the field where the postcard scene appears to have been taken from.  I am standing somewhere on the edge of the main so couldn’t quite get the same panoramic view.
