Leeds Bradford Airport, aerial veiw, looking south-east (Yeadon)
Black & White imageUndated. Aerial view of Leeds Bradford Airport looking south-east, possibly taken in the 1950s but at least before 1964 when the third runway was built as only two can be seen here. Yeadon Tarn is on the bottom right, with Victoria Avenue running from left to right above; on the left is the crossroads where Warren House Lane leads down from Victoria Avenue and White House Lane leads up towards the airport complex, the uppermost buildings being the large hangars used as flight sheds for the AVRO factory which built aircraft during World Ward Two. Scotland Lane runs from left to right further up and Cookridge is in the background.

Leeds Bradford Airport, aerial view, looking east (Yeadon) (1 comment)
Black & White imageUndated. Aerial view of Leeds Bradford Airport, looking east, showing two runways at right angles to each other, so it must have been taken before the third runway was completed in 1964, probably during the 1950s. Yeadon Tarn is seen at the bottom left with Victoria Avenue above, running diagonally down from left to right. The view looks towards Cookridge at the top right.

Yeadon Tarn (Yeadon) (1 comment)
Colour imageOctober 2003 View of Yeadon Tarn, known for many years locally as Yeadon Dam, a natural depression where surface water collects to form a lake. The surrounding land has been developed as a park offering many recreational activities eg. fishing and sailing. The sailing club was founded here in 1928 and is situated across the water in the background, along with the Tarn Activity Centre and childrens playground. There is also a newly erected bandstand. Cemetery Road runs parallel with the path at this side of the Tarn, off camera, right.

Yeadon Tarn (Yeadon)
Colour imageOctober 2003 An autumnal view of Yeadon Tarn, a large stretch of water which provides recreational activities for local people. It is thought to have a long history and appears on various early maps including Jeffrey's map of 1775. The Tarn is also known locally as the dam or 't`moor dam' and is marked on old maps as fish pond. The council purchased the Dam field for recreation purposes and the layout, paths and childrens playground were planned in 1930.
