Roundwood to Gawthorpe
Roundwood to Gawthorpe via Cross Keys. Smith’s Coal Merchant’s truck at Roundwood heading towards Gawthorpe with Clegg’s Farm on the right and Gladstone’s Cottage and Red Lodge (at Cross Keys) on the left, with Holy Trinity Church in the distance. A signpost signals the track to Low Laithes on the near right of the sketch.
The Coal Merchant’s truck is heading towards Ossett on the stretch of the old Wakefield to Ossett road, which was truncated by the construction of the M1 motorway. The sketch shows the Coal merchant at the current site of the traffic lights at the junction of Queen’s Drive and the Wakefield Road at Roundwood.
Clegg’s Farm was in the position currently occupied by the Days Inn and the farm and Gladstone Cottage were demolished at the time that the M1 was being constructed.
