I assume the the word 'Stanks', used here, had the same meaning as it had, South of Leeds, in Beeston, where it described an area of extremely boggy land, with many stagnant pools which 'stank'. It is nice to see that the name of the last great Pagan king to hold sway in this country is still remembered in this, an area in which he is supposed to have fought and died, in his last battle against the Northumbrians. What a wonderfully different country we might all have been living in, had he triumphed.

This photo was taken from the paddock which belonged the farm which is just out of the picture to the right. In the 1940's and early 50's the first cottage was occupied by Mr Alfred Myers,the second cottage with the small porch was occupied by the Newsam family,the smaller cottages in the centre were at that time derelict, the first of the far cottages was occupied by the Harveys and the furthest was occupied by the Ramsdens. Just through the trees on the right can be seen the rooftops of no's 38 and 40 Barwick Road. The hedge to the right was the boundary of the farmhouse garden.

I lived on Barwick Road in the 1970s and I can still remember climbing over that stile as a child - probably about 1971 or 72. The path was later surfaced and became a busy access to John Smeaton High School. I remember the farm (not visible to the right) being demolished. I seem to remember the occupants of the fold cottages at that time were called Linstead (nearer cottage) and Titchmarsh.

The First cottages where indeed occupied by The Linsteads - Douglas and Vera who paid £100 for the Cottage with the Porch , they then bought the rest of it for Mr Titchmarsh who was Vera's Dad. I know this as I'm their Grandson and Great Grandson. Ken Green lived to the left in Kelmscott Garth and stole part of our land, my parents built in the Garden of my Grandparents circa 1981 . Pity my Grandparents aren't around to see this photo as it shows part of the hedge he claimed we planted on his land and he then preceeded to rip out an ancient hawthorne hedge that had been part of the boundary for in excess of 100 years.
