The long brick wall is covered in graffiti and between the two gateposts is the entrance to Ridge House. Towards the left the view looks across to properties in Woodhouse Lane and the light-coloured buildings belong to the University of Leeds.

New Bank Street, Banks Hill Wesleyan Methodist Chapel (Morley) (1 comment)
Colour imageJanuary 1965. View of Banks Hill Wesleyan Methodist chapel in New Bank Street. The chapel was an offshoot from Queen Street Wesleyans, now the Central Methodist Chapel. It was built in the 1880s, being designed by architect, T. A. Buttery who produced plans for several other Methodist chapels, e.g. Bethel and Ebenezer, which looked very similar to this. The money was, in a large part, provided by Mr. Edward Jackson of the firm of W. and E. Jackson of Peel Mills, who lived in a large house called Winterbourne on Victoria Road, where the entrance to Winterbourne Avenue is now found. Before this structure was completed the Methodists, at this northern end of Morley, had worshipped at Banks Hill iron chapel, a ramshackle tin hut on the same site.
