Croft House Drive, Under Construction
May 1963. In the 1960s a large area of land between Church Street, New Bank Street, Victoria Road and King George Avenue was developed with semi-detached bungalow dwellings. Because it was near to H. H. Asquith's birthplace, Croft House, the region came to be known as the Croft House Estate. Here, the first road of the new development, Croft House Drive is being driven parallel to New Bank Street towards the old Plate Road. The rhubarb sheds and fields along the Plate Road can be seen in the distance behind the bungalows. On the left was Morley's original flower show ground which later housed Morley Nelson Cricket Club's field. This was the forerunner of Morley C. B. and A. Club along Scatcherd Lane. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.
