|||Aerial view over Woodkirk. (West Ardsley) (1 comment)
Aerial view over Woodkirk in the 1950s. In the bottom lefthand corner the tower of St. Mary's Church is visible and just above is St. Mary's Church Vicarage. In the centre of the bottom is St. Mary's Church Sunday School, and to the right of it a house called Hillside. Dewsbury Road cuts across from left to right. The road upwards leads to Woodkirk Station. The railway line, with the level crossing, can be seen running from left to right towards the top. At the junction of the two roads is The Cardigan Arms, demolished in 1972 for road widening. Railway House is visible above the field of farm animals on the left. Cardigan Farm is immediately behind the Cardigan Arms. Image used courtesy of Peter Aldred. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.

|||Church Lane, St. Mary's Church (Garforth)
View of Garforth Parish Church, St. Mary's, situated on Church Lane. This is beleived to be the third church on this site, erected in 1845 with financial help from the Gascoigne sisters, members of the family who were lords of the manor and principal landowners in the town. The foundation stone was laid on 22nd July 1844 by Archdeacon Musgrave and the church was consecrated by the Bishop of Ripon, Dr. C.T. Longley, on 14th November 1845. Taken from the site of St. Mary's Hall after its demolition but before the building of houses on the site.
