Administration block for Killingbeck Smallpox Hospital under construction (Killingbeck) (2 comments)
Black & White image19th April 1915 View looking southwards, showing the new Smallpox isolation ward under construction. The main block was originally the farmhouse of Killingbeck Farm to which the new extension was connected. These buildings were part of a small separate compound which became known as 'Killingbeck Smallpox Hospital' situated on the slopes of Wykebeck Valley. The compound also contained one new ward, a small mortuary and some converted farm buildings. Information supplied by John Garnett (Source: The 50th Anniversary booklet of the opening of Seacroft and Killingbeck Hospitals, 1954.)

Disused, sunken lane leading to the site of Killingbeck Farm (Killingbeck) (2 comments)
Colour imageUndated. Image shows the line of a disused, sunken lane leading south down to the former site of Killingbeck Farm from the old stone bridge crossing Wyke Beck. The bridge was part of the old Foundry Lane, before it was re-routed in the 1930s. The sunken lane is thought to have its origins in the medieval period. The area is recorded in the Yorkshire Hundred Rolls, 1274-1275 in the Wapentake of Skyrack. It was held by the Knights Templar of Newsam with 3 bovates (measurements of land) from the gift of Walter de Kelingbec and 4 bovates from the gift of William de Somervil. Killingbeck was, therefore, part of the Temple Newsam Estate. Image courtesy of John Garnett.
