Hall Lane, looking West (Horsforth) (1 comment)
Undated. View of two young riders on horseback, one of them leading a third horse along Hall Lane. The trees on the left are at the edge of Horsforth Hall Park. The view looks West along Hall Lane the original wooden building of the Quaker Hall can be glimpsed at the right edge. The inscription above the entrance read 'God is Love'. This building later became Horsforth Ex-Servicemen's Club and Institute, and was eventually rebuilt in brick but has since been demolished. Planning permission for the building of 6 detached houses was approved in May 2006.

Hall Lane, near the entrance to Farnley Hall Park (Farnley) (6 comments)
Undated. View of Hall Lane under a heavy fall of snow close to the entrance to Farnley Hall park, right. The Hall was built by the Danby family and dates back to Elizabethan times (Thomas Danby was the first Lord Mayor of Leeds). When Leeds City Council acquired the estate the grounds of Farnley Hall became a public park. The Fish Pond has existed here (beyond the stone wall, left) since the end of the Napoleonic Wars. It gave employment in the form of construction work to soldiers returning from the wars who would otherwise have been unemployed. The top of Butt Lane is visible in the near distance on the right.
