Otley Road, Ring Road junction, aerial view (West Park) (4 comments)
Black & White imageUndated. Aerial view showing the roundabout at the junction of Otley Road (from top left to bottom right) with Ring Road West Park (from bottom left) and Ring Road Weetwood (top right). Tram lines are visible on Otley Road which identifies it as being from the 1950s or before. The school at the bottom was probably Leeds Modern School (Boys) at the time, while the girls' school, Lawnswood High, was situated further along the road, off the picture. Both were later combined as Lawnswood School, which was rebuilt in the early 21st century. To the left are semi-detached and detached houses while at the top right corner is Weetwood Hall, then a Leeds University Hall of Residence for Women. A listed building it has since been extended to become Weetwood Hall Hotel and Conference Centre. The area at the top left corner, here part of the University's Athletic Grounds, is now occupied by Weetwood Police Station.
