King Lane Farm, watercolour painting (Alwoodley)
Colour imageUndated. Watercolour painting of King Lane Farm by Joe Tunnington. The solicitor, J.H. Milner purchased the King Lane Farm Estate from the Lane Fox family in 1918 and formed the Alwoodley Park Estate Association in order to develop affordable housing. 207 plots were offered for sale in 1921, at 1 shilling per yard, varying in size between 1,260 and 8,000 square yards. It was one of the earliest lots to be sold and was purchased by a Mr. Ward. The lot included a separate cottage and a large barn(which at that time was rented by cabinet maker George Gill.) Water was originally provided by a well. King Lane Farm still stands near the junction of Stairfoot Lane, adjacent to Headingley Golf course.

Near Adel Crags, postcard (Adel) (2 comments)
Colour imagec1911. This coloured postcard, entitled 'Near Adel Crags', shows Bridge Cottage on Stairfoot Lane. Seen from Stairfoot Bridge, it looks east towards Alwoodley. Bridge Cottage is believed to date back to before 1682 as it appears on a map of this date, occupied by Richard Wrigglesworth who farmed 36 acres of marginal land. The postcard bears a postmark of 1911. Today, a hundred years later, the cottage still exists but is now surrounded by woodland.

Stairfoot House, aerial view (Adel) (1 comment)
Black & White imageUndated. Aerial view of Stairfoot House, a large cottage in Adel, seen in the top centre of the photo. Hidden behind trees above this is Stairfoot Bridge which crosses Adel Beck. On the left is the junction of Back Church Lane, from left, with Stairfoot Lane, (shown on maps before 1921 as Church Lane) above and Long Causeway, below. Stairfoot House has since been demolished and the area is now covered by the detached houses of Stairfoot Close. However, the building at the bottom right corner, known as Dinah's Cottage, is still standing.
