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.

Harwill Approach, stone pillar (Churwell) (3 comments)
Colour image29th November 2007. View of a stone pillar located at a point where Victoria Street ends, Harwill Approach starts, and Back Green begins and sweeps away downhill to the left. This solitary stone pillar may have been part of the gate-way to Point Hall. The coping stone is probably original. The fact that there is only one hole showing in the structure, indicates the point where a gate would catch when closed. This post stands as one of a pair at the top of the drive of this modern house. Even though its mate is a modern construction, it too, also bears an original matching coping stone.

Point Hall Buildings, numbers 1 to 5 (Churwell) (5 comments)
Black & White image1964. View shows numbers 1 to 5 Point Hall Buildings, from left to right. These houses, now demolished, were located off Elland Road, behind the Parish Hall and off Victoria Street. Victoria Street bends round into Back Green and Point Hall House was situated almost on this bend with numbers 12, 14 and 16 Point Hall Buildings adjoining the side of it. Numbers 6 to 10 were built on to the rear of these houses and the House itself, forming a rectangular block at right angles to Elland Road. Numbers 1 to 5 were a separate row facing numbers 6 to 10, part of number 10 is visible at the right edge. On a map for 1988 the site is that of a detached house on Harwill Approach, part of the large Harwill estate. Two women are visible, one carrying shopping. A man is seen outside a house, and another man smoking a pipe is in the foreground. Washing lines extend from the houses. A child's tricycle, a motor scooter and a car are parked outside the houses. The car is a Ford Zephyr, registration 846 EWB. The view looks west.
