Parkside Lane
Three heavy industrial firms occupied the area to the east of Garnet Road. To the south was a largely open area and Hunslet's Parkside grounds. All of this was to change from the early 1970s when industry began to creep southwards. Hunslet RLFC sold its ground for industrial development in 1973.
