Bank Street, Church Street and Victoria Road, Aerial View (Morley)
Black & White image1929. Aerial view of the triangle of land between Bank Street, Church Street and Victoria Road. The mill with the tall chimney in the centre of this land is J.& S. Rhodes, Prospect Mills, whose high water tower is at the side of Victoria Road near the entrance to the newly completed Ingle council housing estate. Towards the Dartmouth from this are the old buildings of Providence Mill, which eventually became absorbed within the Prospect. At the bottom of the image, between Brunswick Street and Bank Street, is Victoria Mills, which also had a tall chimney and belonged to Benn and Webster's. Since closure, the large, roadside building has been converted into flats. Albion Mills, which burned down in 1950, is shown in the top right-hand corner abutting on to Church Street. Along Bank Street, well above the level of the Valley Stream, (here, culverted), are the old Prospect House, Yew Tree House, Bank House and Corporal Crowther's House with the New Old Chapel at the Church Street junction. Yew Tree House was built in 1650 by Richard Huntington and sold by him to Dorothy Waller, daughter of the poet, Edmund Waller. This house is now divided in two with one half now called Swinden House, named after a Dr Swinden who inhabited this house after it had been divided. These houses are now nos. 78 and 80 Bank Street and are Grade II listed. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.
