Albert Road, The Rock Inn (Morley) (1 comment)
Colour imageJanuary 1965. View of the end of the row on Albert Road which accommodates the Rock Inn, so called because of the steep rock face behind it, between Station/Albert Road and Troy Road, above which was Morley's first quarry. The spot where the car is parked was the site of the pinder's cottage. It was the job of the pinder to return animals that had strayed on to the cropland back to the common grazing land - the Low Common starting about the position of the Rock Inn and extending to the left. The Local Board of Health renamed the 'Low Common' 'Albert Road' in 1866 and 'Churwell Lane' became 'Victoria Road' in the same year. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.

Beeston Common, Beeston Road (Beeston) (25 comments)
