Headingley Golf Course (Adel) (1 comment)
Colour imagec1980s. View of Headingley Golf course located between Church Lane and King Lane, with an entrance in Back Church Lane. The Headingley Golf Club was founded in 1892 and was originally based on the Beckett Estate (now Beckett Park) on Spen Lane. The club eventually outgrew the 9 hole course and in 1906 it moved to the present site, an 18 hole course created on a site near to Adel Church and stretching across to King Lane. In 1969 it was confirmed that a Roman Road had run through part of the course and evidence was found in the 3rd, 12th 14th and 15th fairways. During the Second World War incendiary bombs fell on the golf course. Behind the photographer a small track runs between King Lane and King Lane Farm.

King Lane Farm, watercolour painting (Alwoodley)
Colour imageUndated. Watercolour painting of King Lane Farm by Joe Tunnington. The solicitor, J.H. Milner purchased the King Lane Farm Estate from the Lane Fox family in 1918 and formed the Alwoodley Park Estate Association in order to develop affordable housing. 207 plots were offered for sale in 1921, at 1 shilling per yard, varying in size between 1,260 and 8,000 square yards. It was one of the earliest lots to be sold and was purchased by a Mr. Ward. The lot included a separate cottage and a large barn(which at that time was rented by cabinet maker George Gill.) Water was originally provided by a well. King Lane Farm still stands near the junction of Stairfoot Lane, adjacent to Headingley Golf course.
