For those of you who might be interested:- This ginnel belongs to a section of an old footpath that ran from Old Beeston into Hunslet. It can be traced, and understood today if we can recognise current and slightly older landmarks.The path in question started at Back Lane in Beeston and followed the boundary between King Field and Kirby Banks Screw-works. It turned left at the bottom of the field and went along Jessamine Avenue, across Barkly Road and through what was known as "The Quarry" and then up along Wooler Avenue and into, and through Cross Flatts Park to arrive at what is now the ginnel shown in this picture. From here it carried on to cross what is now Tempest Road, and then on to cross Lodge Lane at the point, where "Beeston Lodge Place" stood on its right. From here it followed the route of Trentham Street, passing "Beeston Lodge" on its right. ("Beeston Lodge" was on land somewhere between where Colwyn View and Woodview Mount now meet Trentham Street.) Immediately after that, "Branston House" would have been visible a short distance to the right. On reaching Dewsbury Road, it then carried on at the other side, heading towards Hunslet, with "The New Inn" on its left. It carried on until it terminated as a 'T-Junction' where it met a path coming in from both left and right. This 'T-Junction' was just about where, in later years, Longroyd Grove would meet Burton Road. Even though housing development over the years has rendered most of the old foot-path extinct, let us hope that this "Right of Way" section shown here retains its status and sovereignty, whatever happens around it in the future.
