Hopkins Gardens looking towards Queen Street (Morley)
Colour imageMay 1970. View along the paths to the roundabout in the centre of the Hopkins Gardens and out to the shops on Queen Street in May 1970. Although many of the trees are in blossom the two large ash trees on either side of the image look to have bare branches. The same two trees appear on a sketch of Morley House to be seen in William Smith's 'Morley Ancient and Modern'. They were situated at either side of the house so they are a good guide to its relative position within the park. Although Morley House for about 200 years was the home of the Scatcherd family, it ended up in the early 1900s in the possession of Mr. R. Borrough Hopkins, Morley's first Town Clerk. He lived at Moor Allerton Hall in Leeds but left Morley House and its grounds in his will to be an extension to Scatcherd Park known as the Hopkins Gardens. The extension was laid out between 1936 and 1939, after Morley House had been demolished. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.
