Wakefield Road

Here we follow Wakefield Road from Garforth Bridge up towards Town End at the top of Main Street where it then becomes Aberford Road. Wakefield Road bounds the West side of Garforth and as another old and original road includes some old properties as well as some of the larger Victorian terraces to be found in the town.

Over in the fields towards Leeds also lies Barrowby Hall. This lands forms the barrier of countryside between Garforth and Leeds and is what keeps Garforth separate from the general sprawl and suburbs. It will be a real shame if this area is ever filled in with housing such that Garforth then merges into Austhorpe and Cross Gates.

The larger house on the right is The Beeches and the row of terraced houses beyond is Dar Villas Cottages

The entrance to Cyprus Road is in the right of the frame. The closest two houses (the one adjacent to Cyprus Road is named Stoneleigh) used to be used as lodgings for the dairymaids at Manor Farm [3].
