Albert Road, The Rock Inn (Morley) (1 comment)
Colour imageJanuary 1965. View of the end of the row on Albert Road which accommodates the Rock Inn, so called because of the steep rock face behind it, between Station/Albert Road and Troy Road, above which was Morley's first quarry. The spot where the car is parked was the site of the pinder's cottage. It was the job of the pinder to return animals that had strayed on to the cropland back to the common grazing land - the Low Common starting about the position of the Rock Inn and extending to the left. The Local Board of Health renamed the 'Low Common' 'Albert Road' in 1866 and 'Churwell Lane' became 'Victoria Road' in the same year. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.

Chapel Hill from Troy Road (Morley) (2 comments)
Colour imageDecember 1962. A snowy view over Chapel Hill from Troy Road on a dull, wintry day. Moving from the bottom to the top, on the left hand side there are a block of red brick lock-up shops; three storey housing with a kiosk paper shop on Station Road, with shops round the other side on Chapel Hill; the Morley Conservative Club; Bank House, a doctor's living quarters and surgery; the large three storey block of 1934 of prospect Mills. Bank Street between Bank House and the Conservative Club contains much old housing including the original Carrier's Arms. Much of the pedestrian movement around this part of town leading to Morley Bottoms was up and down long flights of steps into the slopes of the valley stream which has been culverted under Station Road.

Maternity Hall Gardens (Morley)
Colour imageMay 1965. Image shows springtime flower beds in the Maternity Hall gardens viewed from in front of Morley Hall. The parade of shops up Scatcherd Hill can be seen, as can buildings along Troy Road which overlook this area. The most well-known of these was the building named the Observer Office which originated as the New Town School, ie. the Sunday School building of the Old Chapel which Samuel Stead converted into his Morley Observer printing works and offices for the newspaper. He was able to buy this building when the new Sunday School and Church Hall was opened on Commercial Street in 1900 opposite the library. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.
