Churwell Hill, from just above the Old Golden Fleece Public House (Churwell) (1 comment)
Black & White imageApril 1968. View looking down Churwell Hill from just above the Old Golden Fleece Public House. It was a Tetley's pub at this time and is shown on the right with two cars in its car park. This is taken just after the shops had been demolished. The old millinery shop once run by Mrs. Wilson is still standing but no longer in use for that purpose.

Churwell, two maps showing 'before' and 'after' the building of the railway viaduct (Churwell) (1 comment)
Colour imagec1900. Image shows two maps of Churwell showing 'before' (top) and 'after' (bottom) the building of the railway viaduct. Construction of the railway line began in 1845. The viaduct is built on foundations that are three metres deep and it runs for 65 metres in length. There are six arches of which some reach a height of 15 metres. The Yorkshire gritstone blocks used to build the viaduct each weigh 10cwt. The railway viaduct crosses Elland Road at the bottom of Churwell Hill, (bottom map, right) and Churwell Station can be seen, which closed in 1940. Description of both maps follows: Top Map: From left to right along Roman Road, shown in red: Zion Chapel, Commercial Inn, Nowells Farm, Point Hall, Inn (on left bend of 'U' shape), Old Chapel 1829, Old Golden Fleece, Croft Farm (on right bend of 'U' shape), Manor Farm. At the very right edge there is a word that is possibly part of 'Nunnery'. The route marked with dots is the 'path of Elland Road". Bottom Map: From left to right: Zion Chapel, Toll Bar, Commercial Inn, Town Hall. The 'U' shape is made up of Victoria Street, left, Back Green, bottom, Little Lane, right. To left of 'U' shape is Point Hall. Bottom right corner of 'U' is Croft Farm. Little Lane continues to become Pump Hill, then Old Road, & Manor Farm is next to the railway line. Elland Road cuts across the centre and Shool (School ?) Street runs between Old Road and Elland Road. The railway line has been built and Churwell Station is marked next to Elland Road. Toll Bar visible towards the right -hand side. Parts of the remaining original Roman Road are marked in red. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.
