I'd love to go rooting around there to see if there is anyhing - like drapesy says its unlikely, but how cool would it be to maybe kick around in the dust and find an old lamp or something peeping out!

I was really narked the other night because workmen had closed off Cookridge Street so I couldn't turn right from the Headrow after coming up Upper Basinghall Street.Then this morning I noticed the old tram lines crossing under the junction of Park Row, Headrow and Cookridge St so I am not as bothered now! You can really see how the road layout has changed since they were covered as now they lead into the pavement outside Browns on the corner where that bit of pavement juts out into the road.Pics to follow - sorry about the poor quality!

Unfortunately the original i took was too big to post, and I cant download resizing software at work!Have a look at the google image attached. It does show the position of the tram lines revealed within the blue horizontal lines.

Coincidentally found an almost exact location pic from Leodis of a tram going Cookridge St passed the old leeds perm

Sorry to revive an old thread and with something that may be a bit off-topic but…Some years ago, was the “Guided Bus” track trialled on Scott Hall Road? I seem to recall all the road works when it was being but in but there’s no sign of it now. What happened?

From memory the first stretch of guided bus lane was about 200 yards long and was cut into the playing field on the left approaching northbound the Roundabout where PotterNewton Lane crosses Scott Hall Road. In the mid 90s approximately they then added a section in the central reservation between that roundabout and at beyond the roundabout where Stainbeck Lane crosses. My memory is vague as to whether it extended in the central reservation beyond the Stainbeck lane roundabout as far as Stainbeck Road or beyond and I think this was South(town)bound.Is this where you remember? I can't say for sure as I have not been up there in the last 5 years or so but I wouldn't imagine they been removed. They also still appear to be there on Google Earth. Is there anybody more regularly up and down Scott Hall Road than a London and Wakefield dweller who can say they have been removed or not?
