Crossgates, Aerial View


Crossgates, Aerial View
Description:
Undated. Aerial view of Crossgates with the roundabout at the centre. The central road at the bottom left-hand corner is Station Road with Farm Road going off to the left and Austhorpe Road off to the right. The light-coloured building is the library with the police station slightly to the right of it at the rear. Off to the top left-hand corner is Crossgates Road and then Crossgates Lane. Between the junctions of these two roads the Regal Cinema stands. Crossgates Ring Road runs to the right edge and the curve of Manston Crescent is also just visible below the centre of the right edge. Towards the bottom right-hand corner runs Tranquility Avenue and crossing the actual corner is Tranquility. The Traveller's Rest Public House is seen on Austhorpe Road, just up from the centre of the bottom edge. This pub was later demolished and by the late 1960s another pub of the same name had been built at the junction of Cross Gates Lane and Cross Gates Ring Road, on a site which had previously been a day nursery but on this picture is empty land.
