Aerial view of the Old Tingley roundabout to Woodkirk (Tingley) (1 comment)
Undated. Aerial view of the Old Tingley Roundabout to Woodkirk. Tingley Roundabout is seen in the top left hand corner. The Wakefield/Bradford Road runs along the left edge. Dewsbury Road crosses diagonally from top left to bottom right. As it leaves the roundabout there is a row of substantial houses before the junction with Hesketh Lane which runs diagonally towards the top edge where it meets Westerton Road. Syke Road then runs from Westerton Road down to Dewsbury Road. These four roads form a square, right of centre. Part of this square is Upper Green. Baghill Road and Baghill are in the centre of the right edge. Towards the bottom edge Woodkirk Beck crosses the railway line and Dewsbury Road. Rein Road runs from the bottom left hand corner to join Dewsbury Road. The area along Dewsbury Road from the junction where Rein Road meets Syke Lane is a miniature golf course. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.

Arthur Aaron statue, close up (City Centre) (2 comments)
6th June 2006. View of the top of the 5 metre high bronze statue commemorating Arthur Aaron V.C. At the age of 21 Flight Sergeant Aaron saved the lives of his crew when, fatally wounded himself, he landed the badly damaged bomber. This took place on 12th August 1943 and he died nine hours later in hospital. Arthur Aaron grew up in Leeds attending Roundhay Grammar School. He was the only serviceman from Leeds to be awarded the Victoria Cross and one of very few Jewish recipients to receive this honour. Here we see children at the top of a tree, representing the generations of children since the war who have enjoyed freedom. A little girl at the very top releases the dove of peace. The people of Leeds voted for Arthur Aaron as the subject of this Millennium statue and it was unveiled in March 2001 on the site of Eastgate Roundabout. Photograph courtesy of James W. Bell.
