i know that the motorway follows mostly the old track of the miggy railway..
It mostly follows the Hunslet goods section of the Great Northern Railway not the Middleton line.

I can weigh in on this. My grandad once told me he used to play in some old air raid shelters near the wall behind St Peters Church.
That's all I know but I do remember him telling me it was behind the church

The area I was referring for, further clarity, to where the Hunslet goods line it crosses the Middleton line not follows it.

... but the hill that runs along the back against the fence of the slip road was that always there or was it flat before the motorway was built and the hill is actually fill from the re landscaping for the motorway?
My memory of this is vague after fifty years but I'm fairly sure that the motorway was built on a new embankment at this point and before that the whole area was more or less on the same level as Moor Road.

the park that is there now has a small hill running along it and years ago i was told that there was a bunker underneath this hill, i didnt think much to the idea because i thought i was maybe just landscaping from when they built the park or relandscaping etc, now tho i wonder if the hill actually covers the entrance(s) to one of the bunkers, given the information from polos and the map from miggy bill, i went down there today and in some places next to the old st peters wall you can see random pieces of bricks in the bushes. I pointed this out to the girlfriend and the first thing she said was it looks like the hill shouldnt be there anyway and cant see why it would be
