Well Lane, showing rear of Town Street and Harrogate Road
March 1980. This view taken from outside the Chapel Allerton Social Institute shows derelict buildings and wasteland on the opposite side of Well Lane, in an area known locally as the "Stone Yard". A tall brick chimney on the left with a brick wall attached may at one time have been part of a slaughterhouse. Next to it are the rears of nos. 1 and 1a Town Street. In the middle the backs of nos. 108-114 Harrogate Road can be seen, no. 108 on the left being the Midland Bank. Just visible on the far right is the edge of no. 15 Well Lane. In the foreground is a cleared area where buildings on Lawrence Place have been demolished.
