Aerial View of Wetherby Town (Wetherby) (1 comment)
Black & White imageUndated. Aerial view in black and white showing the town of Wetherby. The River Wharfe snakes round in the foreground with a clear view of the weir. Bottom left is Micklethwaite Farm and then the Great North Road crosses the old stone bridge of six arches. The Old Mill can be seen on the western side of the bridge and behind it, the bus station. The Market Place deviates to the left, while the Great North Road continues straight on becoming the High Street, then North Street. Towards the right corner the gasholder is visible. The first gas works were installed in Wetherby in 1845 and gas lighting was in operation from 1852. The Town Hall is almost central to the image at the top of the centre section. To the left, Market Place joins West Gate which bends round to follow the river side. The Cattle Market and cattle pens are directly above the gasholder, and located in Victoria Street.

Bishopgate (Wetherby)
Black & White imageUndated. View of Bishopgate, an old area of town close to Wetherby Bridge. It is thought to have been named after Walter De Gray, the Archbishop of York, who allowed an indulgence, a remission of punishment for sins committed, to those who contributed financially to the building of the Wetherby Bridge in 1233. An elderly bearded man wearing a straw hat smokes his pipe on the steep stone steps of his home. Below, in the street, two boys are visible, one looking directly at the camera. These buildings are now demolished and the locality is known as Bridge Foot, near the Market Place.

Black Bull, Otley Market Place (Otley) (1 comment)
Colour imageOctober 2003 View of the white painted frontage of the Black Bull in the market place which is thought to be the oldest of Otley's Public Houses. During alterations in 1971 workmen unearthed a 16th century stone fireplace and a wooden door which, over two hundred years ago, would have given access to the street. There are records that the Inn was visited in 1644 by a party of Cromwell's Ironsides, the night before the battle of Marston Moor, and proceeded to drink it dry. A white painted sign depicting a handsome black bull is in pride of place above the doorway and hand pulled Timothy Taylor's Ales are available within.
