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.

Undated: Flats with garages underneath.

We lived at 4 South Parade one of the old streets knocked down to build the flats We had no electricity ,only gas lights and a toilet at the end of the garden. The back overlooked the engine fields and I have happy memories of playing there and sailing boats in the Old Dog mill dam. My mother didn’t work and could make a meal from nothing !.We didn’t have a lot of money but we never went hungry and life seemed one long summer.
