A time capsule filled with items telling the story of Morley has been buried at a new housing development.

Year One pupils from Fountain Primary School, in Fountain Street, Morley, visited Barratt Homes’ new St Andrew’s View development to complete their history project.

The youngsters have been gathering historical items as well as creating artwork and writing letters to be placed in the time capsule in recent weeks.

Having been given a site safety talk by St Andrew’s View site and contracts manager Mark Oates, the children buried the memento for future generations.

The St Andrew’s View development, which is off Bruntcliffe Road, features around 50 three and four-bedroom homes.

Campaigners urge new owners of cherished Leeds mill to reach out - and ‘help us tell and re-tell the Temple Works story’
