Henshaw Lane – 1900

View of Henshaw Lane looking towards Otley Road (A65). On the left is the Station public house, it was previously called the ‘Malt Sack’ the name was changed when the railway line opened in 1895. A sign on the wall advertises “W Whitaker & Co Celebrated Ales”
The building on the right edge is Denison’s Farm.

Two men stand in the road, the one on the left is holding out a piece of paper towards the camera.

Behind them the tallest building is the old Church of England School.

Editor’s Note: I have enlarged the photograph to see what exactly the man is holding in his hand and in my view, it is not a piece of paper, but a container which may have been used to carry milk. There is a similar photograph H439, on this page dated 1907, however, if you look closely the same man is again photographed holding this container. The dates may well be closer together.

Henshaw Lane – 1969

A branch line ran to Yeadon, spurring off from the Guiseley line, it had opened on 26th February 1894 as a goods line only, taking coal to the mills en route then transporting manufactured goods from the mills.

Occasionally a passenger special would be run during Yeadon Feast Week when all the mills were closed, enabling workers to have a day at the seaside from their home town.

Use of the line declined and it was closed in 1966.

This view looks up Henshaw Lane in the direction of Harper Lane and shows the railway bridge being demolished.

Jennings of Pudsey were the contractors, a notice states”Demolition of Bridge. Road Closed Sunday”.

The buttress walls still remain, the track bed is now a nature trail.

When the bridge had been removed double decker buses were able to use Henshaw Lane.

This was at the other side of the road from the Commercial and when I was a child and lived in Varley’s fold. I remember this being demolished in the 30’s The horse and cart are at the bottom of Varley’s fold. I have a photo of the shop owned by my wifes Grandfather William Hardy which stood on this site in earlier times.
