#Helmshore #Haslingden #Rail

In this fifth part of a series of upcoming videos, we are revisiting the sight of the Helmshore Rail crash that took place on the 4th September 1860.

Here, we visited the final resting places of both Starkie Harrison and Hartley Butterfield, two of the eleven victims who sadly perished in the early hours during the rail crash.

Starkie Harrison was engaged to Mary Fell, another victim of the rail crash, and they were due to be married the weekend shortly after the tragedy.

We have set up a GoFundMe page for donations to allow us to collect money for the purchase of a memorial plaque and fi you can, please donate as little or as much as you possibly can to help.
