|||Albert Road, The Rock Inn (Morley) (1 comment)
View of the end of the row on Albert Road which accommodates the Rock Inn, so called because of the steep rock face behind it, between Station/Albert Road and Troy Road, above which was Morley's first quarry. The spot where the car is parked was the site of the pinder's cottage. It was the job of the pinder to return animals that had strayed on to the cropland back to the common grazing land - the Low Common starting about the position of the Rock Inn and extending to the left. The Local Board of Health renamed the 'Low Common' 'Albert Road' in 1866 and 'Churwell Lane' became 'Victoria Road' in the same year. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.

Photograph possibly taken in the mid to late 1960s. The Whitecote area was to be redeveloped, many of the old stone cottages were demolished. The Rock Inn public house was selling John Smiths Magnet Ales. This pub was not pulled down and is still in business.

Image shows the Leeds and Bradford Road at Whitecote. The Rock Inn and adjoining former stables are Grade II listed and date from the late 18th century. The inn is built on 2 storeys with an attic and there are round headed attic windows in the gable ends. The stables are set back slightly, to the left.

|||Rock Inn (The), Albert Road and Perseverance Mill (Morley)
Image shows the Rock Inn on Albert Road. Station Road and Albert Road diverge just before the Rock Inn is reached and the former makes its way to Morley Low Station, passing at a lower level in front of the mill on this photograph, Tommy Marshall's Perseverance Mill. The mill has now been demolished. The Rock Inn stood on the site of the pinfold, a place where the pinder put animals that had strayed from grazing off the Low Common on to enclosed land. The owner then had to pay a fee to get his animal back. The inn is called the Rock because just behind it was a sheer rock face coming down from Troy Road. This rock face was used as a quarry during the early years of Morley's history. Only the left hand side of the terrace is the inn and there are three other dwelling houses in the same row.
