Comment On the left is a wheelwright and blacksmiths shop. To the right, the second house in from the edge was formerly a beer house called the Brown Cow. It was closed some time in the 19th Century by the Fawkes family who lived at Hawksworth Hall until they moved to Farnley Hall.

There is uncertainty about the identity of this farm. On the index which goes with the photos it is named as Manor Farm. The same image was published in Martin Rigg’s book “Old Aireborough” where it is said to be Springside Farm, home of the Briggs family for over 60 years.

Previous Comments:

Pete Sutcliffe Great picture.

Simon Butterworth The large X shaped aerial would be for BBC Holme Moss. The second looks like it’s for the ITV service from Emley Moor which started in 1956.

Richard Elliott Yes, it’s a Hillman Minx. Series I, I think so 1956 or later.

Brian Firth Going by the car, the telegraph poles and the street lamp, I would guess late 50s early 60s. Also, there is a TV aerial which eleminates the 40`s.

Christine Hathaway Phillips The place hasn’t changed one bit unlike Yeadon and Guiseley.

Judith Stead Making me feel a little homesick!

Chris Walton Was Emley Moor vertical polarized then or is it an FM radio aerial?

Looking down the street to the gates of Hawksworth Hall, I’m reminded I still have the commemorative Queen Elizabeth coronation coin given to all pupils at the school by Mrs Gaunt. I have vague memories of a party at the Hall. I’d just started school. We lived in the small block of council houses on Hawksworth Lane at the bottom end of Greenfield. Every morning Martin Long and I were shepherded along the road past the golf course by Martin’s older brother Allan. Would be regarded as too dangerous today.
