On this day in 1818
A Magic Lantern slide lecture was written and delivered by Harry Greenwood at the Highgate Literary and Scientific Institution, London. He told the story that "a half-witted boy" had noticed in the morning a heap of grass stacked against Haworth church tower, and saw a mark it had made against the masonry, not thinking that the heap may have sank, proclaimed to anyone he saw in Main St that the tower had grown in the night.

On this day in 1864
The first sod was ceremoniously cut by the chairman of the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway Mr Isaac Holden. A procession left Haworth at 2 o'clock with a sliver spade of carved and polished oak supplied by Mr Manoah Rhodes of Bradford and a barrow of polished oak supplied by Messrs Pratt and Prince of Bradford.
