Comment
1: Looking up from Well Lane to Abbey Garth apartments.

2: Looking from Miry Lane up to Wells Court and Abbey Garth, blocks of flats built to replace the old streets and yards which straddled the site.

3: Block of flats built on a site where many of the old lanes and alleys of Yeadon had stood. 
At one time this area had belonged to the Priory of St Leonard, Esholt and had been called Abbey Garth so the modern name has returned this piece of Yeadon to it's roots.
