The William Henry Smith School, Boothroyd Lane, Rastrick
The William Henry Smith School, Boothroyd Lane, Rastrick
This started as a farm called Boothroyd, and a large house was built in the mid-Victorian period. It became a hospital for wounded soldiers in 1915, then an orphanage. It is now a private boarding school, with several new buildings. The path came across the fields from Field Lane, and is mostly lost in the housing estate, but this last part across Upper Brighouse Close survives.
