I moved onto this estate when I was 2 years old when the houses were brand new in 1964. We moved into the fourth house up on this view. We were the first family in it and I still live here. I moved away as a young man but have since returned. Quite a few families who moved here in the early 60s at the same time as me are still here. I went to Iveson House School and Moor Grange. Its amazing to see this photo. I have fond happy memories of living here particularly as a child when I used to play in the small wood at the back of the houses. Philip Murgatroyd lived in the second house up until he and his family emigrated to Australia in the late sixties.

I was interested in Mr Brogdans comments. I did not live here but over at Tinshill. However my best friend lived at number 23, the childrens home. Her name was Susan Wilcox. I also remember the Derig girls Marion and Julia who lived there too.

I think the estate began to be built in the 1950's but our house, no. 12, was brand new when we moved into it. We were the first tenants. Mr & Mrs Egan lived at no. 14 and Mr and Mrs Totty lived at no. 16. They all lived there for many, many years. I played with the kids from the home including Deborah White and Aidie Lindley who still lives in the area. There was also a Keith Markman lived in this home before moving to the home on Iveson Approach. Some other mates were Geoff Gale who lived on the Lutterals and Graham Smith who lived on Iveson Rise and again, he still lives local.

I worked on the building of the childrens home in either 1954 or 1955. It was built by J. H. Wood & Co Ltd whose offices and workshop were in St Columba Street where the Arndale Centre now stands. My sister was the first tenant of 64 Iveson Rise in 1955

Clive Frost. . . I reckon if you lived in Iveson Crescent then you would have snuck onto the playground at Iveson House School through the chestnut paling fence like everybody else !! I had a pal called Graham Towns who lived in Luttrell Crescent, otherwise I would never have known where the main entrance was !

My parents moved in to 4 Luttrell Crescent in November 1949 and I was born there in December 1950. Looking at the photo I would say the date is the early 1950's as there are no hedges. On the left hand side of the road would be the entrance to Iveson House school, so no excuse for me to be late!! The house below the school was home to a Kay Daniels,I believe, who became famous as the author Kay Mellor. The houses in Luttrell crescent that are shown had the McGretton family in the left house, whilst the right hand house had the Rhodes family, the Smith family and the Dixon family. Now I think of it the McGrettons lived in Iveson Rise and the other house was No 1 Luttrell Crecent. Other residents I remember were Mr & Mrs Holdsworth, the Hartleys, Mr & Mrs Till, the Totty's, The Burgess family, The Appleyards and the school caretaker Mr Liley. I remember Mick Derrig? at the care home as well as many in Luttrell Crescent and Place. I left in 1982 and my mother Margaret Towns left in 1988. Oh yes Mr & Mrs Denton were our next door neighbours. Hope this has stirred a few memories!!

Further to yesterdays note, my mind started ticking over. Just below the picture at the top of the Parkstone's lived John Atkinson who played Rugby League for Leeds & G.B. Next door lived Mick Lamb who also played for Leeds. Other residents in Luttrell Crescent were as follows : Daley, Graham, Trigg,Cass, Kennard, Andrews, Bilbrough Ramsden, Bingley & Stephenson. My schoolmates were John Graham, Christine Stephenson, Pamela Kirk, Vanessa Rushton, George Fardon, Chritine Eagleton & Margaret Church. The wood was a brilliant playground. Finally the shops on Iveson Approach were built either late 1950's or early 1960's. The garages behind were the original shops. The old sweet shop was run by, I believe, the Dillons. Hope this helps someone. P.S. must not forget my old schoolmate Don Langley

Our family moved into 10, Luttrell Crescent on 19 May 1949. The whole street was brand new and nobody knew anyone. I still have the conditions of tenancy document that states that the rent would be 19s/2d per week. The conditions defined the equipment of the house such as a dust bin, gas poker, lifting bar, 5 "plug ends", 2 oven shelves, 12 cup hooks, clothes post, 5 keys, 1 galvanized soot box, 2 latted shelves to the vegetable cupboard and 2 loose shelves in the crockery cupboard. No fitted kitchens in those day, and of course the oven was heated from the fire in the main room. Mr Ramsden was a tram driver but he liked to be outside and I remember him helping my dad to lay a concrete path down the garden and planted the clothes post at the end signed in concrete 1950. Our next door neighbours were the Hunts at number 8 then at 12 it was the Padgetts and later Bilbroughs. Further up at 14 were the Ramsdens and the Hattersleys and the Gaunts. Mr Gaunt was one of the two Gaunt Brothers club that was well known in the Leeds area in the early 50s. Across the road from us were the Roes and Cass then Diffleys, Cloughs, Kennards, Andrews. When the childrens home was built next to the Andrews family the bricklayer put a 3 penny bit in the mortar just above the damp proof course. The road remained unmade for ages so keeping shoes clean was a constant problem in the bad weather. There were no local shops until the ones on Iveson Approach were built and it was Dillons that had the paper/sweet shop. We had visits from a bus converted into a mobile fish and chip shop Otherwise we had to pedal down to Bryans at Headingley for the treat of fish and chips. We also had a man that came down from Tinshill on his bike with a small trailer and he did shoes repairs. There was good crowd of youngs ones, Christine Clough, Dennis Diffley, Mary Bingley and Paula Scrubbs who lived at the very last house at the top of the Crescent on the odd side. The Otley Road YMCA was out main place for entertainment It was a lovely time to be in our own place after the war. I left when I was married in 1959 and my mother lived there until she died in 1997. Happy memories.

I lived at 11 Luttrell Crescent from December 1959,in fact I was born at 11 Luttrell Crescent, until I left for college in Brighton in September 1978. I have lived in London since 1981. My parents, Alma and Jim Robinson continued to live at 11 Luttrell Crescent until they moved to Redcar to be near my sister, Mandy and brother Mark. Hopefully some of you may remember us. We all attended Iveson House and then Leeds Modern/Lawnswood. I remember being friendly with Philip Murgatroyd before they moved to Australia and am trying to recall some of the other contributors to this page. We too have great memories of growing up in the area, playing in the street, in the woods behind our house, which is horribly overgrown now I hear, and in the playground at Iveson House school.

We lived at no 11 Luttrell Crescent from around 1960 and had the Floyds and Cass family as neighbours. Myself and my brothers Colin and Mark went to Iveson House Primary School. I have very happy memories of growing up there. I remember how cold the houses were in winter in those days, there was ice on the inside of the windows and mum used to line the windowsills with old sheets to mop up the condensation! I remember picking bluebells in the woods and the bonfires we used to have there on Bonfire Night.

Many fond memories of the area, especially the wood behind the houses. Football was played there constantly, games would last until you couldn't even see the ball. We even managed to erect a crossbar across the trees, which were used for goal posts. Fondly remember the Robinsons, Wests, Bells and Steve Day has also contributed to this sight. Happy days
