Lidgett Lane

On this page we travel down Lidgett Lane from the bottom of Main Street towards Selby Road. Closer towards Main St. Lidgett Lane has many fine Victorian houses as well as entrances to the terraced Streets such as Beech Grove Avenue and Strawberry Avenue.

Further along Lidgett Lane is the more modern Police Station and Garforth Academy (formerly Garforth Community College from my days and Garforth Comprehensive School before that though everyone my age just calls it t'Comp!).

Beech Grove Avenue

Here is a view of Beech Grove Avenue showing the road un-surfaced. As in many places, the iron railings were removed during the war to be melted down as steel for airplanes was in short supply.
