Ryelands Road - Lancaster
Ryelands Road - Lancaster
Seen here is a part of Ryelands Road that was known as the 'Bull Ring' because the road in this area of the 1930s Council Estate was oval. Quite a number of the houses have been demolished giving parts of Ryelands Estate open areas in a radical plan of recent years. The junction on the left is the cul-de-sac of Artle Place, which is named after Artle Beck in the Lune valley. Artle Beck flows into the south bank of the River Lune four and one fifth of a mile east as the crow flies, near the village of Caton. Indeed I was happy to discover as a boy that the place names on Ryelands were named after beautiful valleys and fells etc in NW Lancashire. Wonderful places that I would visit on my push bike in late boyhood and early teens.
