|||King Lane Farm, watercolour painting (Alwoodley)
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.

|||Near Adel Crags, postcard (Adel) (2 comments)
This coloured postcard, entitled 'Near Adel Crags', shows Bridge Cottage on Stairfoot Lane. Seen from Stairfoot Bridge, it looks east towards Alwoodley. Bridge Cottage is believed to date back to before 1682 as it appears on a map of this date, occupied by Richard Wrigglesworth who farmed 36 acres of marginal land. The postcard bears a postmark of 1911. Today, a hundred years later, the cottage still exists but is now surrounded by woodland.

Bridge carrying Stairfoot Lane across Adel Beck. This is looking from the west, the City Engineers Department noted on this photograph that water can be seen behind the bridge face and approaches. The darker discolouration is visible on the stone-work.
