Albert Road, view looking westwards towards Morley old gasworks (Morley) (3 comments)
Colour imagec.1962/3. A young boy stands on land off Albert Road where the former pit tip of Morley Main Colliery is being landscaped to provide more area for the parking of lorries and earth moving plant. The view is looking westwards towards Morley old gasworks and its manager's house, and to the beginnings of the development of the site in Valley Road for Orcal 'Oil Recoveries'. Immediately behind these are sidings for storing railway excursion carriages. The slope up to the top of Daisy Hill shows old houses here being demolished under the slum clearance act, while new housing has been built along the continuation of New Bank Street. Daisy Hill Mill chimney can be seen and in the distance are the tall chimneys of Laneside Mills. There is also part of a pit tip of a Churwell colliery, a path round which was another approach to Daisy Hill. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.

Daisy Hill from Morley Main Colliery (Morley) (3 comments)
Black & White imageLate 1950s. A view towards Daisy Hill from the spoil heap of Morley Main Colliery in the late 1950s. The buildings of the old gasworks have just begun to be used for oil recoveries. Railway carriages are still stored in the sidings just before Morley Low Station. The houses on Daisy Hill are still being lived in; there is much rhubarb growing in the fields around and the position of Daisy Hill Mill is quite clear. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.
