As far as I am aware, Potternewton Hall stood on the site now occupied by Potternewton Heights. This would suggest that the road would be either Newton Lodge Drive or Riviera Gardens to one side, or one of the Henconners to the other... I could be wrong though!

My mother Edna (nee Bartliff) & family lived in No.24 Potternewton Lane, from about 1922 to about 1964. The Metcalf family lived in a farm house 50 yards up the road, on the other side. I have an old photo of the farm house, with some of my relatives standing at the front.

I think this is down the ginnel between Potternewton Lane and St Martin's Road.

Second thoughts, Michael is absolutely right. It's really obvious when it's pointed out, thanks Michael!

I think my grandfather,Leslie Fase,might have worked in this nursery around 1915. His address was Garden Cottage, Potternewton Lane, Chapeltown (as stated on records of his brother's death in World War 1). He used to tell us that on leaving school he went to work for a market gardener "just down/over the road" . Subsequently he joined a firm of landscape gardeners and left the area, eventually ending up in north London, so I don't know the area at all. Does anybody know of the whereabouts of 'Garden Cottage' by any chance ? And would this part of Potternewton Lane be classed as being in Chapeltown ? Grandad was the grandson of a prosperous London jeweller, but his father had somehow become a factory worker in Leeds. They had moved out from the centre because my grandad suffered a lot from bronchitis.
