The A65 runs diagonally across the view from the top right corner to the bottom left corner.
Also running diagonally across the image is the route of the old Yeadon railway line, from just left of centre at the top to the bottom right corner.
Trees line both sides of the old line which disappears under the A65 then re-emerges.

     Westfield Mill is in the top left corner, the large building with the "saw tooth" roof, below the mill and between Kirk Lane on the left and Whackhouse Lane on the right is the housing estate built on the site of Leafield Mill.

     In the top right corner is a roundabout which is at the junction of  the A65, Green Lane and Micklefield Lane, also JCT garage and car sales.
One gasometer can be seen remaining on the site of the Yeadon and Guiseley Gasworks, this area now has housing built on it.(March 2013)

     To the left side of the A65 are the Barfield, Barcroft and St Johns streets, on the right is the Westfield estate.
In the bottom right corner are Westfield Junior School (nearest to the road ) and behind it is St Peter and St Paul RC Primary School.

In the early days much of this photo would be termed as Nether Yeadon, particularly the Gill lane, Warm Lane and Westfield areas.
