Low Fold looking South (Rawdon)
Black & White image4th December 1981. View of Low Fold located off New Road Side, looking South. This is an enclave of old stone properties and farm buildings. On the left, a small building with white painted gable end is number 11 New Road Side. Behind it are larger stone terraced houses, numbering 1 to 9 New Road Side. A sign, at the left edge reads 'Books and Bargains'. On the right there are more stone buildings, including Low Fold Farm with long roof line. Behind it the houses are numbered from 1 to 6 with the farm marked on the map as number 7. The central breeze block and corrugated iron buildings are a animal shelter used to house pigs. The group of trees in the background obscure the single storey Rawdon Library building but the council offices in Micklefield House are visible. Although the house has earlier origins, it's present layout dates from the 1870s.
