Likewise. I had always presumed that due to there being a wall there, but the two photos I've got of the outside of the old chapel suggest it's on that side of the steps. The slope of the hill is all that's really there from the old photos (the relevant tombstones being, sadly, long gone)

Have either of you researched Betty Kippax, second wife of James of Holt Hill?

I have but only a bit as she was my 3xgt grandfather's 2nd wife. I am pretty sure Maureen and Kris have a connection with her, but I don't think they have much info either.
I know her parents were William Leaver (born 1811) and Betty Duerden (born 1807), she was born 1830. That info I got from Chris Greenwood a member of the site.
Do you have a connection?

Betty Kippax had the shop at 69 Halifax Rd Holt Hill, it is the first cottage on the right. There is a picture of it on this site here http://www.briercliffesociety.co.uk/Pho ... 0Hill1.htm
