Here is a small selection of photographs taken of just some of the thousands of students who have attended Lightcliffe Church of England School. This first one is in the Coach Road litter picking Lightcliffe C of E School children 3 April 1995.
Today, I attended a special service at St Matthew's Church, Wakefield Road, Lightcliffe. This was to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Lightcliffe Church of England School. With almost 100 people in attendance it was nice to have the opportunity of seeing people I personally had not seen for many years - it was almost a mini school reunion.
The photograph was taken on March 18, 2003 and shows a major development on the edge of the town centre. I am sure you can guess what it will be .... Tescos new supermarket.
Another piece of local history was demolished this week in Bailiff Bridge. Most people may have never really noticed the old red brick building on Bradford Road which was next to the flats and almost opposite Ceramix the tiling company.
Even local people in the area will be surprised to hear about the history of the building which started as the Brighouse Motor Agency and was selling petrol in cans and supplied and fitted solid tyres. Here was a small business that over a period of years grew into a substantial one.
