Cheers Phill. According to the 1908 map, Water Lane did extend from the Victoria Road junction in the west, to the Meadow Lane/Hunslet Lane/Hunslet Road/Bridge End junction in the east.

I remember Water Lane just being derelict for years, in fact I may have borrowed a few of the cobbles from the street when it was been lifted
Is this the end of the story ...
or the beginning of a legend?

Yes Water Lane ran from Bridge End and the number 10 is next door to the old warehouse which is now apartments at Two Water Lane.

You know when you are getting old when you read historical queries about places you knew well.

Water Lane did indeed start from the shops on bridge end which are still there, and ran along the riverside, across to where people think water lane actually started/starts.

I worked around there for years. The flavour of what it was is always captured on the Godfrey maps. All that went with the Asda building.

The most interesting feature from years ago was a large Quaker meeting room and a large burial ground on the Asda/water lane site.

I don't know how that was handled when it was abandoned and re-developed.......

Please excuse my earlier attempt. It wasearly this morning and I'd only just gotten up.
Of course Water lane did extend all the way to Bridge End, I just missed it off!
Anyway, here is another go.

Because lunacy was the influence for an album. It goes without saying that an album about lunacy will breed a lunatics obsessions with an album - The Dark side of the moon!
