A walk around old Morley tour

Queen Street, looking north towards the Town Hall

We start our walk here, just below the famous Town Hall. This image, from around 1906,shows a very Edwardian looking Queen Street, as it looks north from the market place. There are three listed buildings in view, the Town Hall (1895), Lloyds Bank, (1899) and the 1899 Co-operative premises, the bottom storey of which became Barclay's Bank in 1975. On the extreme right is the end of the Exchange Buildings and then James Hicks, Game Dealer, followed by Herbert Dixon,local Draper. In 1906 drapery and clothing outlets were the commonest types of shop in Queen Street. At an angle at the end of Albion Street is Morley Manor House dating from Jacobean times and home of Titus Oates, one of the conspirators in the Farnley Wood Plot. It was occupied by a succession of doctors in the last hundred years of its life, and, in 1803, before that, it was the birthplace of Sir Titus Salt.
