|||Britannia Terrace, old postcard view (Morley)
View of a section of Bruntcliffe Road/Britannia Road, part of the Wakefield - Bradford Road, called Britannia Terrace. The terraced housing is typical of the building in Morley between 1870 and 1910, many of which were demolished in the 1960s and 1970s. The homes seen here are built in brick with Welsh slate roofs, and are back-to-back. On the left is the Cross Hall Wesleyan Chapel on Bruntcliffe Road which was built in 1878-79. The first house to the right of the Chapel is number 1 Britannia Terrace and numbers continue right in an odd sequence. A sign for an off-licence corner shop is just visible and this marks the junction with Fountain Street. This postcard is one of a series by Preston for Fountain Street Post Office. The Tram route turned left into Fountain Street at this point in Britannia Terrace.

|||Butcher Lane, Wesleyan Chapel (Rothwell)
|Undated. View of Butcher Lane showing the Wesleyan Chapel on the left. Methodist services in Rothwell had originally been held in a farm building on Butcher Lane, belonging to farmer James North. After his death the land was gifted by his widow in 1799 to a group of trustees - which included John Wesley himself - on which to build a chapel.

|||Chapel Lane, old Wesleyan Chapel (Yeadon)
View of the old Wesleyan Chapel which dates from 1766 and was built by Jeremiah Marshall of Parkgate, Guiseley. According to Philemon Slater in his 'History of the Ancient Parish of Guiseley' John Wesley often visited Jeremiah Marshall's home and preached twice at the Wesleyan Chapel. The first time, on 2nd May 1782, he wrote 'On Saturday evening I preached to an earnest congregation at Yeadon. The same congregation was present in the morning together with an army of little children.' Again, after preaching on 21st May 1786, he wrote 'Such a company of loving children I have seen nowhere but Oldham.' The chapel was doubled in size in 1770 but still eventually found to be too small. In 1854 it was purchased by Mr. W. B. Crompton Stansfield of Esholt and became a Church of england Mission Hall and School before the building of St. Andrew's Church in 1891. In this image the chapel is in a state of disrepair and was demolished to be replaced by the Church Institute built in 1894. It is now converted to flats.
