Hawthorn Cottage was at the top end of the Recreation Ground Moorfield Road. To the right of the gates there was a path leading up to Tower Lane, and along a field which was on Hill Top Armley opposite the Travellers Rest pub. It is many years since I was around this area, but I seem to remember that the original gates were wood and there was the name "Hawthorn Cottage" painted on them. As a child I often used to go to Moorfield 'Rec' with my friends to play.

A wooden name plate with Hawthorne Cottage painted on it is now on the outbuilding that you can just make out in the fore ground to the right of the cottage in the photo. There was a large house on the junction with Armley Grange Mount and Hill Top that has recently been demolished and I think it may have been called Highthorne House.

RR Brown, could you pinpoint exactly where Highthorne House is on Moorfield Road as I have been unable to find it?

Highthorne House is on Moorfield Road, on the opposite of the playing field, between the playing field and the church junction. It is an old house and is set gable-end onto the street.

Beautiful picture brings back many happy memories. I was born and lived there until 1957. The building in the foreground was a greenhouse where my father grew grapes, but my favorite was the well in the greenhouse which was home to many large goldfish.
