Gill Mill Farm cottage is on the left, the ruins of the old Corn Mill are on the right edge. The mill was thought to have been built in 1628, by Francis Layton, who was Lord of the Manor of Yeadon.

In the Yeadon Township records of 1668, it is called the New Mill, when other mills developed in the locality it became known as Low Mill.

Llewellyn Jones had the mill prior to 1914, it was demolished during the 1939-1945 period.

Taken outside 45 Gill Lane, a girl dressed as a nurse with a decorated “hospital” pram which aslo has a doll in nurses uniform.
The pram wheels and handle are decorated with flowers, perhaps this was a carnival entry?

The following five photos are all 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 maybe 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 maybe 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. There were 3 mills on Gill Lane, 2 corn and 1 Woollen. Possibly 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.
