Cookrdige Tower, Garden
c1894. View of the garden of Cookridge Tower, a nineteenth century residence situated off Hospital Lane near Otley Old Road. At this time the house was owned by the Sykes family. Alfred Wilberforce Sykes, born in c1833, was a woollen and worsted manufacturer and merchant of the firm Hudson, Sykes and Bousfield of 19 Wellington Street, Leeds and Low Hall Place. A bearded gentleman, wearing a hat, can be seen, possibly one of the gardeners.

By the late 50's this was an enchanting place. A neglected garden that had turned into a wood. The paths were still visible at this time and each side of the pathways were full of flowering rhododendron bushes that formed tunnels in the undergrowth
