Aerial view of Morley Town Centre (Morley)
Black & White imageUndated. Black and white aerial view of Morley town centre showing Albion Street cutting across the bottom from left to right. The mill on the left has it's entrance in Albion Street and is the Queen's Woollen Mill. To the right of it is Morley Town Hall which fronts on to Queen Street. Queen Street runs from the top left diagonally. Immediately behind Queen's Mill, separated only by Wellington Street, is the Albert Mill. The square building towards the top, left, is Morley House, the home of the Scatcherd family for over 200 years. The site of the house became laid out as the Hopkins Gardens in 1939 in accordance with the will of Town Clerk, Richard Borrough Hopkins. At the very top of the image Troy Road extends down to join Queen Street. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.

Albert Mill and Queen's Mill, from Lambeth Walk (Morley) (1 comment)
Colour imageMay 1960. The view from Lambeth Walk (seen on left with people walking along it) behind Morley Town Hall. The ground behind the Albert Mills and the Queen's Mills is still rough here (former quarries filled in and spoil heaps flattened out in the 1930s). There are pathways over it into the top of Wellington Street and round the Queen's Mill into Albion Street. Both mills have tall blocks which obscure the lower part of the Town Hall, built for the spinning, carding and water using processes, and the weaving sheds (single storey) have spread out at the back or sides of these. The Albert Mill chimney is off to the left while the Queen's Mill chimney was near to the houses in Albion Street. That shown on the right is the shortened chimney of Wesley Street Mill. Both the Albert and the Queen's Mills were built before Morley Town Hall, the Albert in 1858 and the Queen's in the 1870s, so once the site for the Town Hall had been chosen in 1890 there was no way it could have been opened up at the back. One or two small buildings belonging to the Queen's Mill were demolished and the fire station built just after 1900. It was a fire at the Albert Mills just over a year after this photograph was taken that caused the Town Hall dome to catch alight, destroying the dome and the Town Hall clock in the process, and costing the same amount of money to rebuild in 1962 as did the whole Town Hall in 1892-5. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.
