Bookmarked: South Leeds buildings at risk

Temple Works, Holbeck

A new council report has highlighted how a number of historic  south Leeds buildings are ‘at risk’.

According to a report in the YEP today, these include:

Beeston’s Stank Hall Barn, which some say was built with timber left over from the construction of ships used by explorer Christopher Columbus;

Holbeck’s Temple Works, an Egyptian-inspired mill built to house part of John Marshall’s 19th century flax empire.

South Leeds Life has read the report, which will be discussed at the Joint Plans Panel meeting at Leeds Civic Hall tomorrow at 2pm. Other notable inclusions are:

The memorial to Henry Marsden in Holbeck Cemetery, Hunslet Mill and Thorpe Hall in Middleton.

Here’s the report in full. Scroll down to the last pages for a full list of buildings at risk:
