Sleights from Battle Banks, Lowdale

Sleights from Lowdale

An unused (and unidentified) postcard view of Sleights from above Lowdale. The hand written annotations appear to correspond to the following two images of the Sleights area. Noel Barrett tells us: ”This photograph is taken from Battle Banks which lies just above Lowdale Hall, Sleights; in the middle ground is what is now Sleights Sports Field which became a sports field in the 1930’s. In the foreground to the right is Lowdale Farm and barn.”

    This photograph is taken from Battle Banks which lies just above Lowdale Hall, Sleights; in the middle ground is what is now Sleights Sports Field which became a sports field in the 1930’s. In the foreground to the right is Lowdale Farm and barn.
