Photo captures unexpected beauty of Armley Town Street

WLD reader Robert Hanson captured this wonderful photo of Armley Town Street in full bloom, taken Saturday, 24 April 2021.

The trees are on the edge of Armley Moor, which is maintained by volunteers at the Armley Common Right Trust.

The stone you can see in Mr Hanson’s photo, which he named ‘Unexpected Beauty’, was erected to mark the new millennium 21 years ago.

The trust was established after the Enclosure Act of 1794.

It looks after six pieces of land in Armley: Hill Top, Charlie Cake Park, Moor Top (at the junction of Town St and Wortley Road), Armley Moor, Far Fold (over Theaker Lane from the Moor) and Ley Lane (beyond Mistress Lane).

  1. The armley Moor Park is a lovely place to sit and enjoy the sunshine. If it wasn’t for the fact that some druggies seem to arrive like pigeons asking for any change and just being really annoying.
