The area now known as “Cinder Moor,” used to be called “Low Moor.” In 1884, at a cost of £400, it was levelled to create a cricket ground. Low Moor continued as a cricket ground, and then as a combined cricket ground and football ground until 1953, when the area, along with other sites across Leeds, was designated as a heliport. Although never used as a heliport, the site was not restored for green space usage when it was re-designated as a green space in 1973.
