Green Lane, Rawdon Park and Dyeworks
20th March 2007. View of Green Lane showing on the left the new offices of Rawdon Park, advertised as a 'high quality office building to let'. Further along is Green Lane Dyeworks, the premises of Naylor Jennnings, dyers and finishers, as well as Premier Driveways among others. The site was formerly Green Lane Mil and dates back to 1868. Two tall chimneys dominate the skyline.

From Kirkstall to here I lived opposite this chimney at 39 Greenacre Park Rise around 1972-1976.To the left is where the original fire station was just about where the JCT 600 garage is.

As a vending machine service engineer I visited this dyeworks on numerous occasions. The company I worked for, A.R.A. later re-named 'Aramark', also ran the works canteen. On a service call I once found a sign on one of the machines which said 'THIS MACHINE NOT ACCEPTING 2Ps' underneath some wag had written 'ONLY WIGS'.
