General

This is the area around the Potted Meat Stick and the Cross and Stocks. Pre 1960s the Potted Meat Stick, Cross and Stocks were to the right of the bottom of Hallcliffe. The buildings on the left of Hall Cliffe, in front of the Potted Meat Stick were called Fountain Buildings and on the corner with Browgate was the impressive Mechanics Institute.

1960s the roundabout was built. Potted Meat Stick removed. Stocks and Cross moved.

2005 large tank sunk under the roundabout. I have seen an old link to a PDF about the tank - https://www.weholite.co.uk/documents/datasheets/litespeed-baildon.pdf Unfortunately the link is now dead.
