The Vicarage was built around 1870 and today is a home for the elderly.
Bradford Road, Gelderd Road and Street Lane all came together where the constable is standing. Looking in the direction of Bradford, the sign reads Huddersfield/Leeds. The rail line from Gildersome Station runs in a tunnel directly under the crossroads. The photos numbered 2 thru 5 below, are all taken at the crossroads.
Crossroads. Directly behind the building in the center is the Gildersome railway station and below is the entrance to the tunnel.
The Kings Arms at the crossroads. All three photos.
Toll Bar and toll keepers house, looking towards the crossroads. The building in the middle is the Smithy shown on the map above. The toll bar may have been in this place since 1826 and the creation of Gelderd Rd (The Leeds Birstal Turnpike).
