|||Aerial View of Laneside Mills (Churwell) (5 comments)
View north-west towards Laneside Mills, former textile factory now housing various firms. Around the mid 1930s the firm of Japa Paper Products Ltd., paper bag manufacturers and specialists in rotary printing processes, moved to Laneside Mills from their former premises in Playfair Road, Hunslet Carr. The name JAPA stands for the phrase 'Just Another Paper Article' and these letters were emblazoned in huge letters high up on the factory wall. Victoria Road and Laneside Farm are in the foreground.

|||All Saints Church, Elland Road (Churwell) (1 comment)
View of All Saints Church in Elland Road before the surrounding trees were removed. The church was consecrated on All Saints Day in 1901. It is the junior sister church of St. Peter's at the Prospect. It was the successor to the mission church which was in Morley Town Hall. Strictly speaking, Churwell is in Morley since the boundary line between the two runs down the middle of Elland Road and then turns right into the entrance below the church. Research by Ronnie Barraclough. Photographs from the David Atkinson Archive.
