1: A horse and cart is travelling towards Henshaw Lane, the shop units are now occupied by JB Meays butchers.
To the left of the shop the edge of Dinsdale Buildings can be seen.

2: Gill Lane at the junction with Esholt Sprint.

3:This view is of the bottom of Gill Lane.
 
4: View with men posing round a stile and gate.
 
5: 6: 7: 8: 9: "On Gill Lane about 100 yards before the railway bridge a path goes off to the right.
In recent years the area near the path has been used as a parking area for Walker's cars and the surface has been worn down revealing what I think is the junction of 2 pack horse routes
    If you go down the path to the right you soon cross a stone beam bridge.
At the far side of the bridge is again what I think is the remains of the pack horse route to the right.
    The flags of the route continue down the right hand side of Gill Lane almost to the railway bridge.
     As you will know there were 3 mills on Gill Lane, 2 corn and 1 Woolllen.
I suggest the route down Gill Lane connected the mills to the river at Apperley Bridge and even over it.
The other joined Coach Road or even preceded it."

C1900: A photo taken by E E Slater titled "Bridge In Winter", it is located on Gill Lane just before the Esholt boundary.

The buildings on the bottom picture are part of Home Farm, Esholt, and are at the bottom of Gill Lane, at the end of the approach road into the estate.

Picture no.5 shows the Old Pack Horse path, there is a small paddock facing with the iron gate, turn to the right and you are virtually still on old Gill Lane, down across the old ford and then up to Stone Top, where there was an ancient settlement of a cluster of houses going back to the 15/16 th. Century. The records of these people can still be found in the old parish records of Guiseley Church.
