Mirfield Flood

Allotment Gardens, 6.30pm Friday 20th September 1946.
The flood level had now just about reached its peak, and any vegetables in the allotment wouldn't need watering for a week or two!
The large buildings in the distance are the railway goods yard. You can also see the old water tower on the extreme right of the picture. The goods yard sidings extended from here all the way to the rail bridge over the river and Steanard Lane.
The railway employees canteen was housed in a single story red brick building at the top of Back Station Road.
Prior to World War 1 the top half of the allotment field was the site of a football pitch.
