Another of those wintry scenes of the township which perfectly captured a winter’s day somewhere on the meadows. As such it made a perfect Christmas card for friends in Leeds. I would love to know why it was not sent through the post. Perhaps the young ladies were visiting or maybe it was delivered personally.
Today the meadows have been reclaimed from the old sewage works and recovered from its use as a tip. Until recently it was used by our farmers as pasture and water meadows. In places the old irrigation ditches are still visible and there are those who remember falling into them while playing there.
