Aerial view of Elland Road, on the left side of the road is the oval Greyhound Stadium, which was demolished in 1982. In the bottom left corner is the Heath estate. In the bottom right corner is the Leeds United Football Club Stadium. First used for rugby league matches, it was purchased in 1904 by Leeds City Football Club (The Peacocks)who were elected to the Football League in 1905. The club reached the second division but were eventually expelled from the Football League in the 1919-20 season due to financial irregularities. Leeds United Football Club was formed in 1919 and elected to the Football League in 1920. Over the years, Leeds United has enjoyed outstanding success, particularly in the years when Don Revie took over the management. There have also been setbacks and disappointments but Leeds United continues to attract loyal supporters to Elland Road. The capacity of the stadium is 40,296 and many fans hold season tickets.

|||All Saints Church, Elland Road (Churwell) (3 comments)
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.
