Leeds to Dewsbury Road (A 653T) (Morley) (1 comment)
Colour image1st May, 1967. View of the A653T Leeds to Dewsbury Road between Tingley roundabout and the junction with Wide Lane. The photograph was taken from the northern edge of Topcliffe Colliery spoil heap, which had mostly turned to red shale through continuous burning underground. The photograph was taken before the road here became dual carriageway, needed to facilitate the link with the M62 Lancashire-Yorkshire Motorway which was completed by 1971. The building of the White Rose Shopping Centre just beyond the Woodman Inn has greatly increased the amount of traffic in this area. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.
