View of lynchets looking towards Foundry Lane. The lynchets are raised banks of earth caused by ploughing of the slope over a long period of time. The lynchets are thought to be centuries old, dating at the very least to the Medieval period. The photograph was taken looking from the direction of former Smallpox Hospital site which prior to 1915 had been the site of Killingbeck Farm. In the background the two high rise blocks of flats are, Parkway Court, left, and Parkway Grange, right, both situated in Foundry Lane. They were constructed in 1967, each containing 87 flats over 15 floors. Image courtesy of John Garnett.
