This view is part of the Leeds Ring Road which runs from the Barwick Road/York Road junction and splits Seacroft Gate and Windmill to join Old York Road/Coal Road junction.

The tenament blocks to the right have been demolished and replaced by Wooden clad monstrosities which look like stacks of sheds. High steel railings now adorn the whole length of the central reservation. Mar 2008.

As many local contributors will know, this isn't, and never was, York Road. It is a part of the Ring Road built to complete a missing section between Cross Gates and Seacroft Ring Roads. It did however provide a much needed 'York Road' by-pass which until then, had meandered through Seacroft Village itself. Sadly though, it also killed the Village.

Used to play on this field before this extension to the Ring Road was built. Gypsies used to camp on here and hang their washing on the hedgerows to dry.

If this new road didn't kill the village of Seacroft, the amount of traffic it now carries certainly would!
