Taylor’s  Woodyard was between Oakleigh Park Drive and Leigh Hall Road south of Pall Mall. It later became Page Callan.


Opposite Cannonsleigh Crescent roughly between the woodyard shop and Pall Mall was a workshop where the wood was planed. Children used to get a free bag of sawdust for pet  rabbits from there. The site is now residential properties.


The bulk timber was unloaded from barges on Bell Wharf and craned onto special timber drays drawn by two horses. To get them up Leigh Hill two trace horses were added and at the top they were disconnected and returned to the Wharf for the next load.
