Coal Hill Lane graveyard

Postby Pidge » Wed 24 Aug, 2016 12:02 am

Hi all,

Driving past Coal Hill Lane I noticed some large gravestones in what seems to be an overgrown graveyard. Does anyone have any info on the past of this site and if there are plans for the future.

Also, is the field behind this that runs behind the houses of Coal Hill Lane what is known as the cowie? If so, who owns this?

It's such an imposing wall I'm sure there's some secrets behind it!

Was this the graveyard to the Rehoboth Chapel on Bagley Lane? http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/4835986

Aye that's the one. Why has it fallen into such disrepair? Seems a shame.

St Marys Church Lane, Garforth, Leeds, LS25 1NR

Only the section at the front is no longer open, but it has been extended massively towards the rear of the church and is very much in current use..
