On one occasion I was sent from Ledgard's Otley depot to bring back a coach which had been lent to Yeadon depot (arguably in Rawdon by an inch or two !!) and I decided to go down The Steep, cobbled at that time - contrary to the Company's rules - and before I gingerly reached the Kirk Lane junction I wished I hadn't as the descent seemed insecure to say the least - any incident would have certainly meant instant dismissal.
