This is the road from Towngate to Baildon Moor.

Pinfold is off Northgate with what was recently Robinson's Sweet Hut. The toilet block is next to the sweet hut. Then the road to Providence Row and Baildon Moor Garage.

Between the Towngate Rooms and Airedale House is East Parade.

My uncle Lesley had that demolished to make way for petrol pumps and a workshop where those petrol pump are in the photo. Wonder if that's my uncle strolling across the yard.

Very exciting opportunity to acquire this very popular and well known fish and chips takeaway and restaurant which our clients have owned since 1999. Located in this beautiful village location – it will be difficult to find a better business currently on the market. The business enjoys an excellent reputation. Very profitable concern which will continue to go from strength to strength under the right operator. This is a beautifully presented and maintained detached property adjacent to a busy Co-Op with plenty of parking on the doorstep. The outsales side is spacious, bright and tastefully presented with a fully tiled customer side, large counter with five pan Frank Ford island range and LED menu board. The restaurant is self-contained with an entrance lobby leading to a large split level 90+ cover restaurant. To the rear is a large preparation kitchen, potato room, cutting room, store and WC.
