ADEL: Geographical and Historical information from the year 1750.

"ADEL, (given as "ADDLE") a parish in the West Riding of Yorkshire, not far from Leeds, is noted for a moor adjacent to it, on which, an. 1702, were discovered the foot-steps of a roman T. many fragments of their urns, and of a large stone-aqueduct; and at a little distance from thence is a roman camp, pretty entire, with the ruins of their sepulchral monuments."
