|||Brunswick Street, Bank Street junction (Morley)
|April 1969. This is the junction between Bank Street and Brunswick Street, taken from Dawson Hill. Bank Street runs from Victoria Road to Church Street, first down a steep section locally called the Old Hill (coming in on this photograph from the left) and then back up to the top of Chapel Hill (going off to the right), where some well-known houses were situated in the 18th century. These were Prospect House, Yew Tree House, Bank House and Corporal Crowther's House. Of these Prospect House, in front of the Prospect Mills, Yew Tree House and half of Bank House are shown. Notice the high protective walls keeping the soil in position in this area. Opposite the junction where the old buildings are shown in the bottom right hand corner was Hirst's Yard where the 1849 outbreak of cholera in Morley first started.

|||Chapel Hill from Troy Road (Morley) (1 comment)
A snowy view over Chapel Hill from Troy Road on a dull, wintry day. Moving from the bottom to the top, on the left hand side there are a block of red brick lock-up shops; three storey housing with a kiosk paper shop on Station Road, with shops round the other side on Chapel Hill; the Morley Conservative Club; Bank House, a doctor's living quarters and surgery; the large three storey block of 1934 of prospect Mills. Bank Street between Bank House and the Conservative Club contains much old housing including the original Carrier's Arms. Much of the pedestrian movement around this part of town leading to Morley Bottoms was up and down long flights of steps into the slopes of the valley stream which has been culverted under Station Road.

|||Chapel Hill, Bank Street junction (Morley)
|1963. The junction between Chapel Hill and Bank Street. The Corporation were in the final stages of clearing the Jackson Lane area and then re-aligning the streets. One of the roads to be cut off here was Bank Street which was no longer allowed to come into Chapel Hill. The area where the vehicles are parked was turned into garage spaces. The bottom of Jackson Lane was also turned into garage spaces though a footpath used the steps into Chapel Hill about opposite where the bus is. Later on the Carriers Arms and other buildings on that side of the road were demolished and new flats put in their place. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.
