Albert Road, view looking westwards towards Morley old gasworks (Morley) (3 comments)
Colour imagec.1962/3. A young boy stands on land off Albert Road where the former pit tip of Morley Main Colliery is being landscaped to provide more area for the parking of lorries and earth moving plant. The view is looking westwards towards Morley old gasworks and its manager's house, and to the beginnings of the development of the site in Valley Road for Orcal 'Oil Recoveries'. Immediately behind these are sidings for storing railway excursion carriages. The slope up to the top of Daisy Hill shows old houses here being demolished under the slum clearance act, while new housing has been built along the continuation of New Bank Street. Daisy Hill Mill chimney can be seen and in the distance are the tall chimneys of Laneside Mills. There is also part of a pit tip of a Churwell colliery, a path round which was another approach to Daisy Hill. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.

Albion Mill site, view from (Morley)
Colour imageMay 1963. This view looking towards Middleton was taken from behind where the Albion Mill once stood, before being burned down in a fire in 1950, on the approximate site of the old windmill. Before the Parish Church was built in 1830, Church Street was called Windmill Hill Lane and Chapel Hill was originally Windmill Hill. For many years the windmill was used to grind corn, but about 1780 it was decided to try to run some textile machinery in it like carders and scribblers, though not very successfully. The photograph was taken looking down on Morley gasworks. Behind them is the tip for Morley Main Colliery. On the right is the back of New Bank Street and Crank Mill chimney. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.
