|||Belle Isle Estate, plan (Belle Isle) (1 comment)
Plan showing new roads between Middleton Colliery and Belle Isle Estate. Running across the top of the image is Windmill Road with Winrose Drive above it leading to Belle Isle circus right at the top of the image. From Belle Isle Circus almost to the bottom of the image runs Belle Isle Road. Town Street branches off diagonally towards the bottom from Belle Isle Road and Nesfield View is right from this junction. Above Nesfield View are houses built on the incomplete 'Brooms' estate and below it are homes on the partially built Nesfield Estate. Middleton Colliery is marked on the left where Middleton Park is now located. Houses on the Lanshaw estate curve round at the bottom of the image. Just below Windmill Road the footprint of Windmill Primary School is visible but St. Peter's Roman Catholic Church, on a site below the school playing fields, or the houses on the Petersfield Avenue estate are not yet built. Running up the centre, from Town Street, is Aberfield Drive joining Winrose Approach. The road to the left of Aberfield Drive is Newhall Road. Next to Newhall Road the Manor Farm site has still not been built on.

|||Churwell, two maps showing 'before' and 'after' the building of the railway viaduct (Churwell)
Image shows two maps of Churwell showing 'before' (top) and 'after' (bottom) the building of the railway viaduct. Construction of the railway line began in 1845. The viaduct is built on foundations that are three metres deep and it runs for 65 metres in length. There are six arches of which some reach a height of 15 metres. The Yorkshire gritstone blocks used to build the viaduct each weigh 10cwt. The railway viaduct crosses Elland Road at the bottom of Churwell Hill, (bottom map, right) and Churwell Station can be seen, which closed in 1940. Description of both maps follows:
From left to right along Roman Road, shown in red:
Zion Chapel, Commercial Inn, Nowells Farm, Point Hall, Inn (on left bend of 'U' shape), Old Chapel 1829, Old Golden Fleece, Croft Farm (on right bend of 'U' shape), Manor Farm. At the very right edge there is a word that is possibly part of 'Nunnery'. The route marked with dots is the 'path of Elland Road".
From left to right:
Zion Chapel, Toll Bar, Commercial Inn, Town Hall. The 'U' shape is made up of Victoria Street, left, Back Green, bottom, Little Lane, right. To left of 'U' shape is Point Hall. Bottom right corner of 'U' is Croft Farm. Little Lane continues to become Pump Hill, then Old Road, & Manor Farm is next to the railway line. Elland Road cuts across the centre and Shool (School ?) Street runs between Old Road and Elland Road. The railway line has been built and Churwell Station is marked next to Elland Road. Toll Bar visible towards the right -hand side. Parts of the remaining original Roman Road are marked in red.

|||Manor Farm (Rothwell)
View of Manor Farm looking from the Pastures.
This building was once a much larger complexity of buildings.
It was here that John of Gaunt built a bridge stone from the castle to the church.
In 1486 the building was in ruins, when it was given by King Henry VII to his friend Roger Hopton.
It was re-built in 1487.
The timber frame was removed when it was demolished in 1976.
