Springfield Cottages, Springfield Lane (Morley)
Colour imageSeptember 1968. This image shows Springfield Cottages at the bottom of Springfield Lane, just before the gates of Springfield Mill, not long before they were demolished. Springfield Mill was right on the edge of town and these cottages, with a peculiar slate design, were probably built for key workers at the mill. The cottages, with separate pitched roofs, were probably for a higher grade of worker than the central section as the rooms appear to be larger. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.

Springfield Lane, from Victoria Road junction (Morley) (1 comment)
Colour imageAugust 1967. Looking down Springfield Lane from the junction with Victoria Road. The Shell filling station at the right hand corner has just been built but the corner seat is still there, the pavement is still slabs and the road sandstone setts.
