Cottingley, long-distance view from railway line (Cottingley) (2 comments)
Colour imagec1970. Long-distance view looking towards Cottingley from the railway line beside the disused Beeston station. The tower blocks of Cottingley Heights and Cottingley Towers, reputedly the tallest flats in Leeds, stand out. They are surrounded by different stages of housing development: on the left the pre-fabs built in the late 1940s as a temporary solution to a housing shortage, and on the right Phase One of the new houses which would eventually replace them all. The whole development was built on the site of the old Cottingley Hall Estate following the demolition of Cottingley Hall Farm in 1947.
