Parlington Estate Plan 1800's. The Great North Road can be seen in the bottom right of the picture progressing diagonally towards the centre top. Although not obvious on the plan at this scale, the carriageway from the Triumphal Arch lines up directly with the spire on Aberford Church. [Not a coincidence I suspect]
[From an original kindly lent by Dr Adam White, Curator, Lotherton Hall. Probably held in the muniment room at Parlington, now the original is held by Leeds City Archives, part of the Gascoigne collection.]
