Thats the smallest subway.. Theres a mill goit in the middle & a much longer, darker & more forbidding place further up..

Really horrible flash picture.. They must have been brave in those days.. No sign of any lighting at all down there.

Nice work Phill!
there are 10 types of people in the world. Those that understand ternary, those that don't and those that think this a joke about the binary system.

Thanks Drapsey. You do a mean bit of investigating yourself :-)

Heres another aerial picture from Leodis.
This is looking towards the East, Tong Road/Wellington road runs through the centre then off to the left - copley hill sidings at bottom right corner.The old Yorkshire bank on the corner of Wellington Road and Copley Hill is easy to spot.
Heres's the Link to Leodis if you want a better look:

And heres a photo obviously taken on the same flight - slightly higher but shows a bit more of the Lemi.
http://www.leodis.net/display.aspx?resourceIdentifier=20031030_4026430&DISPLAY=FULL

Comments on Leodis lead me to think these photos were taken in c1965/66

Anyhoo you can make out the Lemi on the right hand edge of the photo - about three-quarters of the way up - unfortunately slightly cut-off, but it looks like something's going on. The only thing I can think of is that the feast's in town! wonder if Biscuit Tin was there?

I'm particularly interested in The Holbeck Recreation ground , behind the Waggon and Horses, that staged Yorkshire Cricket matches in this era

Footnote - Did you know England played Australia on the Holbeck Rec in an Ashes test match in the late 1800's and England bowled em out for 90 odd runs HURRAH! Also thats where Holbeck Rugby club played until they were moved to a site on Elland Road, where they decided they were rubbish at rugby, merged with Hunslet Football team, took up Footy and became Leeds City FC.
They had to move travellers off the site at Elland Rd, who cursed the ground for all that played on it (says a lot). Don Revie famously had the curse lifted.
