Jasper Hill, Lightcliffe

Reader David van de Gevel writes

Jasper Hill runs from the end of Ripley Street to the valley bottom near Firth's old mill dam.

In the 1950s this was a favourite spot for scores of kids – and their fathers – to go sledging, because it offered two runs: one down the old road (presumably an old coach road) and a transverse run for the more adventurous leading to the beck at the bottom.

At the bottom of the road was an old iron gateway, approximately 10 ft wide, complete with stone pillars, beneath which was a narrow but quite steep weir as part of the beck.

I would be interested to know if anyone has any information as to the origins of the name Jasper Hill and what was the function of the gateway which was rather too substantial to be a simple farm gate
