Undated: Sign to mark the boundary of Moorefield Mills which were demolished in 1972.
It is no longer in situ (February 2013)

Undated: An office building which is situated next to the White Swan cricket ground, this would have been the perimeter of Moorfield Mill.

Undated: An undated photo of the interior of Wm. Murgatroyd's Moorfield Mill.
It looks as if it could be the Pump House.
P361

1950s/2006: In the left view Harrogate Road (Victoria Avenue) runs across the top from left to right.

The High Street comes down from the right hand corner, Moorfield Mill is above the White Swan cricket ground.

On the left behind the mill is Moorfield House, once the home of William Murgatroyd who built the mill.

The 2006 photo looks across the High Street to a fish restaurant which is on the site of the Moorfield Mill, when the restaurant was being converted from a car showroom it was decided to name it after the original mill owner.
