If we are looking at the back of Green Lane Mill, then we should be standing in Henshaw Lane. Just in front of BentonTerrace top right is some property called Calcutta which can also be approached from Sizers Hill off Henshaw Lane. On the tree line top left is Benton House.

I remember going to cubs 10th Airedale at henshaw church walking from Canada road, passed twigs shop gynal down onto the bentons, and then green lane, and the view of the Naylor Jennings mill dam, and on the rufford avenue side, was, green lane cricket ground [they moved when the land was sold, to the council park-opposite aireborough grammer school- the wall around the park was removed revealing an open space through to the big estate in shaw lane]
We would pass Naylor Jennings and then walk through the railway yard- green lane to henshaw lane, and then through the backs to henshaw church hall field, were the scout hut/cub meetings took place. On a summers evening meeting we would often play tracking down gill lane? into warm lane and then a footpath back to esholt wood along the track/road to the railway footbridge. up to the hill top, through west field estate-piggeries [being built back] then passed west field chippie, along the main road to the gas works where we started,
and then back to the scout hut to be dismissed. Great evenings!!!
