A winter view of High Royds Hospital with its distinctive clock tower looking over houses and the Otley Road (A65).

Have you a favourite photograph on our website that you would like to see as photo of the week on the AHS Home Page?
Follow us daily on our Facebook page where you can see photographs of Aireborough and near neighbours through the ages and post your comments and memories’.
Whilst the AHS website contains a wealth of information it does not contain all the photos, documents and maps which we hold.
Grateful thanks to Carlo Harrison who instigated digitising the collection and created this AHS website.
