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.

Bank Street from Boar Lane (City Centre)
Colour imageMarch 2015. At the time this image was taken the new shopping centre, Trinity Leeds , had been open for two years and here we see the completed access/egress for Trinity West, which was formerly the south end of Bank Street. The modern curved Boar Lane frontage of Trinity Leeds, off camera right, is sympathetic to the curved corner of the Victorian building at the west side of the junction with Bank Street, left, which dates from the 1880s. This is number 63 Boar Lane, which houses a branch of Sainsbury’s Local. It was at one time The Peel public house.
