Asquith Avenue, detached house (Morley)
Colour imageOctober 1965. This house was only in existence for five or six years. It was built without planning permission just beyond Horsfall Street in Asquith Avenue. The house was for Kenneth Sanders when he worked at J. & S. Rhodes' Prospect Mill, and was designed by Tony Kellett, a Morley architect living on the Isle of Man. Shortly after it had been built the Highway Authorities decided to build the M621 motorway from Gildersome to link Leeds with the M62. This house was directly on the route chosen (i.e. where the motorway goes under Asquith Avenue) so the house had to be demolished before the end of the 1960s.
