Thornfield, just off Britannia Road
August 1965. Thornfield was a large detached house in its own grounds built by the well known Morley manufacturer, William Jackson of W.& E. Jackson of Peel Mills, Morley. On his death the house was inherited by his daughter who was married to William Middlebrook, a Morley and Leeds solicitor. He was Mayor of Morley in 1897 and in 1905 and Lord Mayor of Leeds in 1911. At this time he was also the M.P. for South Leeds, being a keen supporter of the Rt. Hon. H.H. Asquith, the Morley born Liberal Prime Minister from 1908 to 1916. This photograph was taken in August 1965 when Thornfield had become the property of the Freemasons and was the local Masonic Lodge. It is used for their functions and those of the Rotary Club and can be hired out to locally approved groups for dinners, dances etc. The building is just off Britannia Road. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.
