Comment Looking down the Steep it is obvious why locals always call this street the Steep rather than Town Street. The pale coloured building at the bottom is Parmar’s newsagents. Photographer Carlo Harrison.

The shop at the bottom of the Steep – Town Street – which was then Parmars Newsagents is now converted back to a house and the stonework has been stripped of its’ paintwork.

On one occasion I was sent from Ledgard’s Otley depot to bring back a coach which had been lent to Yeadon depot (arguably in Rawdon by an inch or two !!) and I decided to go down The Steep, cobbled at that time – contrary to the Company’s rules – and before I gingerly reached the Kirk Lane junction I wished I hadn’t as the descent seemed insecure to say the least – any incident would have certainly meant instant dismissal.
