Helmside Cottages

The red-bricked terraced Helmside Cottages were built in 1885 to house railway workers. Originally there were 25 cottages, 13 on the eastern side and 12 on the western side.

Helmside Cottages as surveyed in 1887

Today, there are only 11 on the western side, and the first cottage is numbered 4.

Number 2 has been demolished – a new brick facia can be clearly seen and the chimney breast, originally hidden internally between numbers 2 and 4 is now exposed. It was demolished to enable the main road to be widened and improve visability at the junction. The residents of No. 2 Helmside at the time were apparently Mr & Mrs Balmer and their daughter Wendy who moved to Bolefoot.

Helmside Road, connecting Burton Road to Oxenholme Road, came much later in 1896. Until then, to get to Oxenholme Station and Depot, the railway workers had to use the cinder path running alongside the railway track.

1909: Oxenholme – Railway Mission

On Monday a successful gathering was held to celebrate the third anniversary of the opening of the Mission Hall. Numerous guests, after partaking of a substantial tea, were addressed by Mrs. Isaac Braithwaite. The chair was occupied by Mr. John Parker, who referred briefly to the work and progress of the Mission under its earnest leader, Mrs. Page. The latter in a few well-chosen and touching words, thanked the members and workers for their help and sympathy. The tables were presided over by Mrs. W. Phizackerley, Mrs. Ellison, Mrs. Chris. Dobson, Mrs. J. Parker, assisted by many willing helpers. The programme included music and recitations by Miss Wilkinson, Mr. W. Phizackerley, Master C. Ewen, Miss Black, Misses Robinson, Miss Fanny Jackson, and Mr. Parker. Miss Wilkinson presided at the organ.
