Lynchets in the winter-time, looking towards tower blocks in Foundry Lane
Undated. Image shows a heavy frost covering the lynchets in this wintry scene. Lynchets, seen in the background, right, are a series of raised mounds of earth caused by sustained ploughing of a slope over many years. It is thought that this evidence of early farming dates back to at least medieval times. According to the Yorkshire Hundred Rolls of 1274-1275, an investigation carried out during the reign of Edward I, farmland in this locality was owned by the Knights Templar of Newsam. It had been gifted to them by William de Somervil and Walter de Kelingbec. In the background two tower blocks are visible in Foundry Lane. Partially seen at the left edge is Parkway Court and then Parkway Grange. These blocks of flats were built in 1967 to a height of 44 metres on 15 floors, each housing 87 residential units.
