River Aire, aerial view
Undated. Aerial view of the River as it meanders its way through the space between Kirkstall Road (right) and the railway line (left). Redcote Lane crosses the river at the bottom via Gott's Bridge and runs diagonally up through the site of the former Kirkstall Power Station, now demolished. The area has since been transformed into Kirkstall Valley Nature Reserve and a golf course. Kirkstall Valley Primary School is seen at the bottom left.

The allotments are at the top of this photo, then as the river widens there is a car lot, Leeds Motor Company i think. Then there is the printers, the old car wash then in the very bottom the buildings that are now Asda, previously netto.

My dad used to have an allopment at the end of Red Cote lane just near the canal around 1958/9. He also had one near the river Aire by the piggaries off Kirkstall road.
